    Hi all. I have a 1 GB stick of memory (PNY 2700 333 MHz). I have the current voltage set to 2.7. If I try to raise the voltage any higher, I get a warning that says that I am exceeding its limitation and doing so can cause damage. Should I just stop and hold at 2.7 for the memory voltage? Thanks.

    What are you trying to achieve by raising voltage?

    That's not all that high, the Crucial Ballistix DDR is rated at 2.8v, however they had alot of chip burnouts at that voltage (DDR600 BTW) So I would say that 2.7v would probably be the max safest volts unless you have more ram.
