When we test our RAM samples, we first do all of the benchmarks at stock speeds and timings and we then swiftly move on to seeing how far they can be pushed. We also see how much the RAM can tighten its timings with the stock voltage and speeds to see if there is any additional performance to be gained via that method.
All DDR3 RAM we test has a slightly increased voltage limit from the 1.65v limit to 1.7v to see how much extra performance there can be gained from the modules. By no means should you run on your daily system, it was done purely for benchmarking reasons.
