Intel makes excellent boards. According to the product brief, which you can download off your link, it supports ddr3 voltage ranging from 1.35 to 1.65. The 1.8 volt rating may only be if the ram is running at 1600. I've gotten my ram to 1600 without a voltage increase, running at 1.5 using manual adjustments. Your ram has as much chance of working in this board as any other. Most ddr3 will post at 1.5 volts; If it doesn't post, try just one stick at a time, and go ahead and load windows with just one stick if you format the hardrive. Then add the other sticks later and run memtest if you have any problems with bluescreens, which is usually a ram issue.
