Vmem under-volts in latest EPoX nForce2 mobo?

I observed this in my older 8RDA3G 2.0 and the current 8RDA3+ v3.1, every time I set vmem to 2.9 both board gave me 2.83 instead in BIOS health screen.

Did I miss something?

Check your VMem with a meter. I have noticed that a lot of boards with that Winbond chip tend to under report the voltage a bit. It might be due to quantization error, or perhaps noise on the sense line. I dunno.

In any case, you are only off by .07 volts, or about 2-½%. That's not enough to get excited about. The rails on your PSU probably are off by more than that.
