Hi there.

I was at, for checking out my estimated wattage use.

But another thing catched my attension. It came up with this message:
"Kingston HyperX Grey 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory operating voltage of 1.65V exceeds the Intel Ivy Bridge 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."

Is this dangerous? or is it okay?

My setup:
CPU: Intel i5 3570k 3.4GHz
MOBO: Asrock Z77 Pro 4
RAM: Kingston HyperX Grey 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
GPU: MSI Geforce GTX 760
Harddisk: Samsung 840 Pro 256Gb SSD
Screen: Samsung T260 26"
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
PSU: Energon 750w / Corsair TX 750W on the way.

Hmm i thought 1.45-1.65 was recommended... Might be wrong here so lets wait for someone else his opinion:p  but i think you're in the save
