How do I set RAM voltage on my foxconn?

Hi, I have a Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H (http://www.foxconnchannel.com/product/Motherboards/detail_overview.aspx?ID=en-us0000170)

For some reason my RAM is showing as 1.8 volts in CPU-Z, even though its supposed to run at 2.0 volts. I can't seem to figure out what settings must be changed in the bios.

I have tried to change the DDR Voltage (if thats what needs to be changed at all) but it comes up with various settings ranging from -0.4v - +0.4v which obviously isn't right.

  1. Can't edit my post: the second picture is meant to be this one

  2. CPU-Z only shows nominal voltage of fixed 1.8v.
    Do not rely on it.
  3. By adding 0.2v am I taking a risk? I heard that screwing around with bios can be risky.
  4. With DDR2 you are safe up to 2.1v-2.2v.
  5. What would be a more reliable way of finding out what voltage my ram is currently running at? Thanks

    CPU-Z is reporting the value programmed into the SPD. If someone programmed 3.3V into that SPD field, CPU-Z would report 3.3V.

    The BIOS hardware monitoring page, a software utility that can interpret the BIOS hardware monitoring values (e.g. Speed Fan), or a multimeter.
  7. If the RAM is running at the incorrect speed, would this effect the overall speed of it?

    Of the PC, CPU, etc?
    Be a little specific.

    Ooops sorry.

    What i meant was, if the ram is running at the incorrect voltage or clock speeds, will overall RAM performance (e.g. loading a game up) be negatively effected?
