I am currently building an i5 Haswell gaming system. I purchased the following RAM and I didnt notice the Compatibility Notes in pcpartpicker. It says

"Memory operating voltage of 1.65V exceeds the Intel Haswell CPU recommended maximum of 1.5V+5% (1.575V). This memory module may run at a reduced clock rate to meet the 1.5V voltage recommendation, or may require running at a voltage greater than the Intel recommended maximum"

Will I be OK with this RAM or should I order the 1.5v?

Your link is to a Power supply, but the DRAM thing is 1.5 for the CPU at stock and 1600 DRAM, if the DRAM is 2133 or above 1.65 is perfectly fine, I stick with 1.5 up through 1866, if the DRAM is 1.65 at 1600 say CL9, it can be indicative of weak/cheapie memory ICS

Sorry for the link mix up. Here is the correct link.
