Mushkin HP2-6400 voltages

I just picked up two sticks of Mushkins HP2-6400 (2x2gb).
They say that their voltage is 1.8-2.1v
My mobo (Gigabyte M57SLI-S4) says it only supports 1.8v memory.
I was wondering if i would see any performance boost if i increased the voltage of the memory in the bios? or would i just end up needlessly risking ruining my memory?

My computer is:
AMD: Athlon 64 X2 5200+ OCed @ 2999 MHz
Mobo: Gigabyte M57SLI-S4 w/ nForce 570 SLI chipset
RAM: 4GB Mushkin DDR2 PC2-6400 DDR2
OS: Vista 64bit
VC: EVGA 8800 GTS 320MB

Thanks for any thoughts

  1. Increasing memory voltage does not of itself change performance; some lower-quality RAM needs higher-than-standard voltage because it won't meet its advertised specs at the lower standard voltage. This is sometimes termed factory-sanctioned overclocking, and is just a way for manufacturers to sell inferior memory at a higher price.
