Will 1.65v memory work with ga-ex58-ud5?

I am building a new system and I have purchased a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 motherboard from Newegg. I also purchased this memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145242. The memory is rated at 1.65v, but the motherboard specs on Gigabyte's site list the memory voltage at 1.5v.

Will I run into any incompatibilities with this setup? Should I look into getting a new motherboard or different memory, or will the memory I bought run in this board with no problems?

Thanks a ton!

  1. No, 1.5V is the highest that they initially validate. However, Intel has said as long as it is 1.65V or under you are fine.
  2. 1.7 is the highest you can go On a I7 system in mem voltage settings 1.65v mem is fine for nehelam, as long as the mem voltage isn't over 1.7, it will be fine. The newer ddr3 sets coming out currently will require less voltage. By the way I'm using EX58-UD3R with my mem at 1600 1.65v with no problems at all.
  3. you can manually set voltages for ram on most mobo's. 1.5v is stock voltage.
