This RAM runs at the same specs at 1.25v instead of 1.5v for $5 more. Either kit would work fine with your system. I currently run G.Skill Sniper 1.35v DD3 1600 RAM in my system which is very similar to yours (i7 2600k and Gigabyte Z68 chipset motherboard).

G.SKILL Sniper Low Voltage Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2 $84.99

Well im not too good with the hardware so what is the difference between the 1,5V ram and the 1,25V?What are the pros?

Lower voltage RAM runs cooler, has less strain on the CPU, and can normally be overclocked more. It's not going to matter much to you, though, so I would just get the cheaper RAM.

If going low voltage DRAM 1.25 or 1.35 make sure your mobo supports it, not all do, otherwise they will just run at 1.5 and you might have wasted money if the LV cost more than the regular 1.5 which is the JEDEC Standard
