my quandary is this, my RAM (Crucial Ballistix 800MHz) calls for 2.2v. I'm running an EVGA 780i SLI mobo, in the mobo's BIOS it says they're set to 2.2v,BUT, when I run CPUID Hardware Monitor it says DRAM Voltage 1.65. Isn't DRAM and RAM the same thing? Any thoughts or input would be greatly appreciated.

As you say, DRAM is Dynamic RAM and is indeed the system RAM.

If the system is stable in operation, I'd trust the BIOS voltage indication more.

Have you tried comparing the report from any other diagnostic utilities?
