Default What DIMM voltage should I run this ram at?

Ok I bought this ram and want to put it in my rig:Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9T-12GBRL

I am currently running DIMM voltage at +1.65 but the RAM says to run at 1.5v and 9-9-9-24... Should I try those settings for the timings and voltage and see what happens? I have a mild overclock on my i7-920 of like 3.4ghz so I didn't know if I needed to keep the DIMM voltage at 1.65v or would that hurt the RAM since it says to run it at 1.5v? Thanks in advance for any help.

Is your RAM overclocked? If not then no you should run it at 1.5.

It is a little like 1620... Still run at 1.5 though on the new RAM?

My current ram came with 7-7-7-24 and stick voltage was 1.65... Maybe try like 1.55 and see? Kinda new to the DIMM voltage thing...

IIRC it wont really matter what voltage you set them at long as it's stable and not over 1.65v.

Yeah I'll run them at the recommended setting of 1.5 then go from there... also the stock settings of 9-9-9-24 should be stable I'm thinking...
