Hi there,

I've tried searching the forum for memory compatibility for ASUS PZ68-V-LX but i can't the answers regarding my question.

What i wanted to ask is whether if i can't find the exact memory model that is stated in the Manufacturers QVL online and in the User manual, would there be any harm in using alternative DDR 3 memory modules?

This is because I have found the following memory online which I intend to purchase, but in QVL many memory modules are rated at 1.65 but the one i want to use is 1.5v as shown below:

CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 - 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Jet Black, PC3-12800 (1600), Non-ECC, CAS 9-9-9-24, XMP, 1.50V

I intend to use Intel i5 2500K Sandy Bridge Unlocked Socket S1155 processor.

Thanks in advance,

AFAIK, any Corsair DDR3 1600 1.5v XMP memory is fine.

Thanks, will i need to increase the voltage to 1.65?

no, that will run the RAM over specs.
