Hello everyone!

I am currently contemplating upgrading my RAM from 4GB to 8GB.

Some background:
Mobo: ASRock A55-HVS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Current RAM: G.Skill 4gb 1333Mhz (1.5 voltage) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

What I want to upgrade to:
Kingston HyperX Blu Red Series 8gb 1600Mhz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Basically, I am not sure whether or not my motherboard will support 1.65v, and I know I'll need that to set the speeds to 1600Mhz (or at least, I think I do o-0). I'm not completely sure what determines whether or not this is possible to be honest (kinda new to this all), I just know there is a difference. Will it be safe to install the Kingston RAM and set the voltage to 1.65 for the 1600Mhz speeds? Thank you in advance.
