[SOLVED] Optimal voltage?

Hi,

I've bought 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro (CMW16GX4M2A2666C16) 2666Mhz (as you can see from the model ID).

The BIOS set the RAM speed to 2133Mhz(by default is auto) but the voltage is still at 1.2V. I don't care about getting the full advertised speed since the default speed for DDR4 is 2133Mhz(I don't want to OC it) and I want to extend it's lifespan as much as I can.
Since the ram was tested at 1.2V for 2666Mhz can I lower the voltage? Currently my RAM temps(Corsair's iCUE shows them) reach 47ºC when playing games and 37ºC at iddle.

Thanks in advance.

do not overclock and that will extend the lifespan plenty.
if you lower the voltage it may not work/work properly.

the default speed for DDR4 modules is what they are rated at in this case 533mhz faster.

Understood. Are the temperatures okay or do I need to add more coolers? I read that DDR4 modules should not be over 40ºC (I thought it had something to do with the voltage).
