Why are you asking - are you encountering issues? Or just curious?
I have some G.Skill Ripjaw DDR3-1600 memory, and found that the label on the memory said it is 1.6V, but the motherboard insisted on running much below that. This happened with two motherboards - ASUS Maximus III, and ASUSU P7P55D-E Premium.
The BIOS also set the timing to 9-9-9-24, but the memory was rated for 7-8-7-20.
I adjusted the voltage to the correct level.
After swapping to the Premium board, I also picked up some OCZ memory. Again, the settings the motherboard used did not match what the label on the memory said, so I adjust the BIOS to match the memory's requirements.
I am now running two OCZ and two G.Skill for a total of 8Gb. The voltage and timing are set for the OCZ, and the G.Skill seems to be working well. I am running at 1.65V and 8-8-8-20.
