How do I increase the voltage for my RAM?

I have a D875PBZ mobo with 1 GB (2x512) Mushkin PC3500 Level 2 DDR.

I believe I need to up my RAM voltage to 2.65v, but I can't seem to find how to do it. I looked in my BIOS and I don't see any settings to change in there.

What am I missing here?

Jumper on the board.

- Check your BIOS again to make sure...

The correct jumper should be located right by the DIMMS, check your MOBO manual to find out exactly where.

I think it is an intel mobo so I wouldn't count on jumpers or the ability to adjust any voltages....

Duvie is correct...

Hard says NO overclocking options.

The D875PBZ uses a proprietary Intel BIOS, with a unique layout driven by a top menu bar. The Intel board itself has no CPU overclocking features built in per se, but does still offer performance related tweaking.

If you can, sell it of in the FS/FT forum and grab yourself an newer more overclocker friendly board.
