Here are the output screens from CPU-Z.
Based upon this info, it looks like my memory is only running at 1.5 V. I'll go into the bios to check.
But, if everything is running at stock speed and voltage, what does that tell me? I should bump up the voltage to 'stabilize' it and see what happens with memtest86?

I'm not sure if AMD has the same limit, but it's probably a good idea not to exceed that voltage in any event.

All your screen shots and such where you show the 1.5V value are showing the memory's SPD values. These are pre-sets defined by the manufacturer as to how the voltages/timings should be set for different frequencies, and are not any indication as to the current values for each.
I'm guessing in AIDA, the currently running voltage would be displayed under Computer --> Sensor. I don't believe CPU-Z has any way of showing the currently running memory voltage (just the general CPU voltage).
