DRAM voltage for overclock

Hi, I'm attempting my first overclock - on a i7 2600K , and am a little unsure as to what voltages to set the RAM to.

Relevant Specs:
CPU: i72600K
RAM: 2 x 4GB Kingston HyperX 1600MHz
Mobo: Asus P8P67Pro
PSU: Seasonic X-760

Spec sheet for RAM :

I'm manually setting the RAM voltage, and looking at that spec sheet, under 'Description' it mentions it runs at 1.65v, (it also says 1.65v on the side of the stick), BUT a few lines further down it mentions it runs at +1.5v. Also under 'Features' on the spec sheet it mentions 1.5v. Now I'm slightly confused.

Question: Should I set the DRAM voltage to 1.65v, or 1.5v?

Thanks people, any help much appreciated.
