I have some patriot extreme gaming edition DDR2 6400 RAM rated at 4-4-4-12 at 2.2v

2.2V seems way too high to be running through the ram 24/7 but this is what the manufacturer has rated it as... Should i consider lowering the voltage? If so, what to? and what is the best way to test for stability?

Thanks a lot!

It's just factory overclocked. It will work fine. I had Corsair DDR2 800 cas 4-4-4-12 and it was 2.1v. Actually I had some with both an E6600 and an E8400 and both sets still run fine. A friend bought both those old computers of mine and they still run great.
