If you use a set of dual channel ddr3 memory it can need voltages as high as 2V, and on an i7 system you should not run it with more than 1.65 according to intel specifications so if your dual channel ram needs 1.9v then you should run it at 1.65v and loosen the timings so that you don't break your i7 memory controller.

I suggest this article point that out so that no one destroy their cpu.

(I realize some people run at higher than 1.65v but i doubt anyone who knows what they're doing runs their ram at 1.9v on an i7)
