-Checking  CIMC IPMI collection via dplug on blade confirms fluctuations:
1da | 10/21/2013 04:07:38 | CIMC | Voltage P0V75_DDR3_T6GP1 #0x15 | Lower critical - going low | Asserted | Reading 0.64 <= Threshold 0.64 Volts 
1db | 10/21/2013 04:07:38 | CIMC | Platform alert LED_BLADE_STATUS #0xba | LED color is amber | Asserted 
1dc | 10/21/2013 04:07:42 | CIMC | Voltage P0V75_DDR3_T6GP1 #0x15 | Lower critical - going low | Deasserted | Reading 0.67 >= Threshold 0.64 Volts 
1dd | 10/21/2013 04:07:43 | CIMC | Platform alert LED_BLADE_STATUS #0xba | LED color is green | Asserted 
1de | 10/21/2013 04:58:49 | CIMC | Voltage P0V75_DDR3_T6GP1 #0x15 | Lower critical - going low | Asserted | Reading 0.64 <= Threshold 0.64 Volts

Conditions:
Working blade, not reported 'inoperable' but SEL continuously filled with voltage alerts.
