AFAIK, DDR3's standard voltage is 1.5, RAM at 1.65 has been factory overclocked to reach the speed its at.

In the price range, the V6 GT is certainly still viable.
Other options would be the Thermaltake Frio or Corsair H50, though you will pay more without much more performance.
If you want top of the line air grab a Noctua NH-D14, still $50 cheaper than the V10, but $30 more than the V6.

Haven't heard of any major issues with the Sabertooth, have a link to what you were reading?

Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.

i have got my list down to two boards, either the asus p67 sabertooth or the asus p8z68-v pro gen 3. i will in the future be adding another gpu for sli, my current gpu is the asus gtx 570, and i might look into overclocking if my case is cool enough for it.
thanks in advance
p.s. roark, i havnt so much been reading this info on forums so to speak, but i have been reaserching the motherboard review a bit and theres a few on youtube.
