    Applied memory voltage higher than set voltage on Maximus VI Hero

    Hello all.
    I have a system I'm in the process of testing having just built with a Maximus VI Hero board, i7 4770K, and G.Skill Trident X DDR3-2400.
    The issue I'm having is I'm a bit concerned that the voltage being applied to the memory when using the XMP profile is a bit higher than the already high 1.65V in the profile: if the memory on the board is set to run at 1.65V, I'm seeing 1.665-1.670 on the memory. I can drop the voltage down and see the applied voltage drop by roughly the same amount, so a setting of 1.64 yields roughly 1.655-1.660. My understanding was that going above 1.65V over the long term (I need the system to last 3-4 years) is not a good thing.
    I guess the first question is, is that true? What's a good, long term safe voltage?
    And second, how concerned should I be that the voltage being applied to my memory is higher than the voltage I've set? Should I be looking at something in particular to change to try to drop that down so they match, is there an issue with the board? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
