DDR2 ratings refer to memory clock. CPU-Z figures are based on memory frequency which is half the memory clock.

If the factory voltage recommendations say 2.0 - 2.1 volts, I would run it at 2.1 volts even if the memory seems to run OK at 2.0 volts. For me, the extra stability is worth the small heat and power penalty.
