    I have DDR2100 RAM and I was wondering what a safe voltage is and if it will increase my OC potenial or give me more stability, I don't wanna fry my RAM however ...

    Corsair recommends never exceeding 2.8v.
    2.7v should provide a margin of safety.

    Usually if you raise the voltage to 2.6 you will usually gain alot more stability...

    If it happends to be too much , how does it respond ? If your processor overheats you get lockups and crashes. Will the RAM do the same or will it just cook itself and let you know about it later

    If you move it up in small increments, the box should get flaky (BSOD, random reboot,etc.) before it cooks the ram.

    I personally use a vDIMM of 2.70v. Seems to respond better.

    bigjackusa is right. If you move it up slowly, you'll see noticeable signs that your memory is becoming unstable. Most of what I saw were errors at windows bootup.
