Default Max voltage DDR3

I have a set of Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M4X1600C9 on X48 Platinum board. I have tried to OC a bit. Question is how much can I increase the Voltage reasonable savely on this memory. Standard voltage for this on is 1,5V.

Most DDR3 are OK with up to 1.65V. But you know, it's OC. You do it at your own risk.

Depends upon IC type, some do withstand higher voltages no problem and just keep scaling, while others lose stability and/or even degrade quickly. So keep an eye on the Corsair version number, to figure out what you can get out of them.
