A few days ago I bought 4 sticks of kingston hyperx blu ddr3 ram. At the time I didnt realize that the voltage was a big deal. They run at 1.65v and the more I read the more I'm seeing that 1.5 is recommended. Tried to return them to newegg but decided not to because it would cost me around 25 bucks. Should I try selling them and buying 1.5 or will these be fine without messing up any of my other components? The cpu will be a i7 3930k on a gigabyte x79 up4 motherboard. Thanks.

It should be fine, as long as you set the RAM setting to auto. Then the system will be OK. I use the RAM is KHX1600C9D3B1K2/4GX that is 1.65V too. Don't worry.
