Yah i tested it out on my NF7-S to see what it had compared to my OCZ sticks and it did almost as well as the 2X expensive OCZ (no DC though).
Corsair tends to need more voltage than other brands, but thats not really a problem unless you are shooting for 240+MHz. I think you could get 235MHz 2-4-4-11 (2.5-2-2-5 might perform better) on ~2.8V no sweat.
RAM timings REALLY depend on what chips you have (CH-5, BH-5, BH-6, TCCD...etc) With value ram it's most likely CH-5 and needs burn-in time b4 major overclocks. Anything above that is usually dependent on PSU, other bottlenecks, mobo chipset, and heat.
i find 2.96v is where my PSU starts to show signs of weakness. Still running 3.36v on the rail...but it might be a faulty reading. Planning on getting a better one soon and seeing if i can do better.
