Hi guys, I have this Corsair XMS3 DDR3 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) PC RAM (CMX4GX3M1A1600C9)

Specification:

this ram is been discontinued. I wanted to have dual channel memory,
so can i use "Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) PC RAM (CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9)"

Specification:
http://www.flipkart.com/corsair-vengeance-ddr3-4-gb-1-x...

Will that cause any problem or should I need to use the exact ram of same brand? The only difference between the two rams is one has Test Voltage as 1.65 and other as 1.5. Please advice. Thank You.

Motherboard: ASUS M5A88-M Motherboard
Ram: Corsair XMS3 DDR3 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) PC RAM (CMX4GX3M1A1600C9)
Processor: AMD 3.6 GHz AM3+ FX4100 Processor
