Patriot Sector 5 memory on a z68 chipset?

I'm looking into building an Intel i5-2500k system. I had gotten some RAM a few months back at a decent price that I was thinking to build around.

Patriot Sector 5 DDR3 4 GB (2 x 2 GB) PC3-16000 2000MHz 9-11-9-27 Enhanced Latency Dual Channel Kit PGV34G2000ELK

I have read on newegg that if this type of memory is not paired with a p55 chipset then it will not work even close to what it is supposed to. I'm not adverse to selling it if it won't work, just wondering if I need to or if it will work. Does anyone have any knowledge on this?

Thanks

  1. The problem with this memory is that it is 1.65 volts, and you need memory that runs at 1.5 volts.
  2. If you install and manually fix the memory voltage at 1.5V your memory will not run at 2000Mhz.I had Kingston 2 X 2GB Hyper X 1600Mhz 1.65V. and i had no problem on P67 motherboard, set voltage at 1.5V and it was ok.
