Bought new g skill RAM a few weeks ago, kept crashing my computer so I did memtest on it, no issues, but in bios it's running at over 1.6 V when it should be 1.5V, doesn't seem to be any option in the bios to set it lower, just higher, also, timings should be 9-9-9-24, but it's running at 11-11-11-28 and just defaults back to that when I set it to correct timings. Is there any way to fix this or is it just defective RAM even if there isn't any errors reported by memtest?

Read your motherboard manual. Page 35-42.

What's xmp?

And my motherboard manual just confirmed that the voltage is not able to be set except to incrementally increase it.

If your memory is unstable with looser timings and higher voltage, it's most likely a bad kit.
