1.65 V is the highest for the 1366 and 1156 sockets. Here's the Intel Spec Sheet for the 1156 CPUs: http://download.intel.com/design/processor/datashts/322164.pdf Table 7-6 shows that for "Processor I/O supply voltage for DDR3" the Min is 1.425V, Typ = 1.5, and Max is 1.575. However go back to Table 7-4 and you'll see the "Absolute Max" is 1.65V. (pages 68 and 67, respectively)
Nice article thanks. I just wanted to make sure that it was not a mobo limit.
One last question and anyone can chime in. I just bought Corsair XMS3 4 GB memory

Do I need to add a FAN for these modules? I am not a heavy gamer?
I just play Flight Simulator and X-Plane.
Yep, DDR3 ram at those volts runs nice and cool. Almost all giant ramsinks and fans are just gimmicks.
