When I use OCZ's memory selection tool for a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P, I get the following results:

512MB, 1066MHz, DDR3-1066 PC3-8500, 240p DIMM, 1.5v
512MB, 1333MHz, DDR3-1333 PC3-10600, 240p DIMM, 1.5v
512MB, 800MHz, DDR3-800 PC3-6400, 240p DIMM, 1.5v
1GB, 1066MHz, DDR3-1066 PC3-8500, 240p DIMM, 1.5v OCZ310661GB
1GB, 1333MHz, DDR3-1333 PC3-10600, 240p DIMM, 1.5v OCZ313331GB
1GB, 800MHz, DDR3-800 PC3-6400, 240p DIMM, 1.5v
2GB, 1066MHz, DDR3-1066 PC3-8500, 240p DIMM, 1.5v OCZ310662GB
2GB, 1333MHz, DDR3-1333 PC3-10600, 240p DIMM, 1.5v OCZ313332GB
2GB, 800MHz, DDR3-800 PC3-6400, 240p DIMM, 1.5v
4GB, 1066MHz, DDR3-1066 PC3-8500, 240p DIMM, 1.5v
4GB, 1333MHz, DDR3-1333 PC3-10600, 240p DIMM, 1.5v
4GB, 800MHz, DDR3-800 PC3-6400, 240p DIMM, 1.5v

Does this mean that this module (OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 / 1600 MHz /Gold XTC / Triple Channel Kit) will not work with this board? Is it because it's 1.65V and the board says 1.5V?

^ That memory is very much compatible with the X58...
And actually that memory would work @ DDR3 1333MHz running @1.5V when installed...To get the rated speed and timings, you would have to manually set it in the BIOS and for that speed, it would take 1.65V to run stable...
