Im building a new gaming build

The CPU i want to use is the intel core i5-4690k
The Ram Card is G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 Memory

I have put all the parts into PCPartPicker and it says all the parts are compatible
The only problem is its saying the ram is 1.65v and the CPU is 1.5v.

Will it work fine or do i need to underclock the ram somehow to reduce the voltage.
And if so how do i do this?

Or is there another way to fix it?

It will work fine - just enable the XMP profile in the BIOS.

Edit: I should have said it will work fine as long as the mobo supports it. If you're using a Z97 or Z87, I'm not aware of any that won't.

1.5 is the spec voltage for 1600 and under, the CPU can easily handle 2400 sticks at 1.65, Intel certifies numerous sets. On DRAM voltage I stick to 1.5 with 1866 and under, for 2133 and up 1.6-1.65 is perfectly fine.
