On my mobo and CPU they both support ddr3 1600 ram at 1.5 volts.

Nowhere on the manual does it list the supported latency and timings of the RAM?
I will be using 4gb x2 sticks (same sticks) in dual channel
Will the cpu and mobo support any timing if the sticks are the same?
Just letting you know, I don't care about timing latency, etc. I just want a RAM stick that will POST, and I'm worried if I choose a different timing, the system won't POST.
I don't care about overclocking RAM
Also, one more question. Will 1.65v ram work in my system?

Enable XMP, and select profile 1, that will will read the optimum settings from the DRAM and set the sticks up for you :)

Tradesman, I cannot set any settings because my system cannot boot to bios without RAM. That's why I'm buying ram, I am building a new computer

It will support up to 1600, you can go with whatever timings you want, 1600 with CL9 is basically entry level, CL7 or 8 are better performance wise, would stay away from any that are CL10 or higher, and only look for 1.5 sticks, 1600 DRAM and lower shouldn't require 1.6 or higher voltage, it can be indicative of weak memory chips being used.
