While there is a little flexibility for the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors like this Intel Core I5 2500K, we advise that you are looking for memory in the 1.5v range. The 1.65 voltage that you have selected here can void the warranty on the processor and possibly damage the memory controller in the processor. Change the memory to CMX8GX3M2A1600C9 which is the 1.5v model of the same ram that you have selected.
