More about what voltage choose
  1. 1.5 - that's generally the safe run. Anything more on an Intel chip and you run the risk of damage.
  2. 1.5 volts is intel's spec for the cpu's memory IC you could go with 1.6 but that would void the chip's warranty.
  3. Thank you very much, also, go for the DDR3-1600?
  4. yes.

    edit: if it boots 1333 then enable XMP in the BIOS to get 1600.
  5. Yes, that's an excellent choice. It will fit under any aftermarket coolers you may want to install as well.
  6. Thank you so much :)
