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 : http://www.valueram.com/datasheets/KHX1600C9D3K2_8GX.pdf


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.
