    Will an I7 2600K support my DDR3 1.65V memory?

      I've been looking a purchasing a I7 2600K with a DZ68DB motherboard.  I already have 2 x 2GB 1600 MHz Corsair XMS3 DDR3 DIMMs (1.65volt) left over from another project that I want to use but I am unsure of wheather or not this combination will work together.  From the techical documention I have read, the MB says it will accept 1.5V DDR3 DIMMs with the option to raise the voltage for higher performance DDR3 DIMMs.  I was under the impression that the CPU controls the voltage to the memory and not the MB.  Is this assumption correct?  Will this CPU,MB,and memory work together in harmony without any meltdowns?
