Question about RAM voltage

Hello guys. My PC is built as follows:

 

MSI B450M Bazooka

Ryzen 5 2400G

Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 Mhz 16Gb (2X8)

Rosewill Arc 550W 80+Bronze

 

I was looking at the RAM timings on the corsair website, and noticed that they are exactly the same as the ones selected automatically  by the A-XMP profile 2 on my motherboard, EXCEPT the voltage, which is set to auto at 1.328V meanwhile the corsair website advertises (or suggest) 1.35V.

I haven't had any crashes or issues. I play OW, Apex, CS:GO, etc and I never had any issues or crashes.

I was wondering if I should raise the voltage (since I've never done a stress test) or keep it as it is, since I never had any issues? What could be the problems that can happen?

just keep it as is

I would recommend manually setting the DRAM voltage to 1.35V because what you are experiencing is a VDROOP issue, as in, it gives a voltage to the VRMs, but the VRMs, due to losses, give a slightly lower voltage. If there is loadline calibration, I recommend adjusting that. The problems that CAN arise, is potential instability in the future (maybe in a few years), but to give it a more likely chance of not crashing, increase it to the rated voltage. You CAN make it 1.34V, which actually might be the most optimal voltage for your scenario.
