I have just installed a total of 8G of the Gold 1600 Low Volt on my P55M-UD2, which has the F6 BIOS. I manually set the V dimm to 1.64 and I got error in memtest in a min or 2. If I set the V dimm to auto it seems to run fine. However, I know the i5 doesn't like more than 1.65 and I have no way to check if it has gone over the limit. I am just looking for some help to see if this setting will fried my system.

The current DRAM voltage (DDR15V) is shown on the PC Health Status screen in the BIOS...
