¿Can i set my DRAM's voltage to 1,65v?

Hi everyone! I am new in this community. I'm curious of what will happens to my G3258's memory controller if I set my DRAM's to 1,65v just to get stables and lower latency.

I'd read some post where everyone says that using 1,65v stick with haswell CPU will blow the memory controller and broke the CPU, but I don't know if pushing manually my DRAM's to 1,65v to get lower latency (7-7-7-20 on 1333GHz stick's from Hynix)), is the same as using 1,65v.

What will happens to the CPU's memory controller if I push my DRAM's to 1,65v? Is the same as using 1,65v factory sticks?


Specs
Motherboard: MSI H81M-E33
CPU: Intel Pentium G3258 (OC to 4,8GHz with 1,36v)
RAM: 2x2GB Hynix 1333
GPU: GT 640 OC'd (1150GHz on GPU and 1000MHz on memory)
PSU: Corsair CX430

Thanks :D!

  1. What is the model of the Hynix, 1333 shouldn't need any more than 1.55 or so unless really old

    It's a Hynix 2GB 1Rx8 PC3-10600U-9-10-A0
    HMT325U6BFR&C-H9 NO AA. 1130

    It's a module from 2011, but the reason i pushed it to 1,65v was to get a CL7 stable and it's running at those latency like a charm, but i'd read some post where people says that using 1,65v modules with haswell CPU's isn't a good idea because the memory controller could blow up, so I am a little worried of frying my CPU.

    Pushing the DRAM's voltage to 1,65v is the same as using Non-Recommended 1,65v modules on haswell CPU's? Could that fry my CPU's memory controller?

    It shouldn't NO as 1.65 is perfectly safe for Haswell

    Thanks a lot man. Now i know i can leave it on 1,65v thanks :D :p
