    Motherboard and Memory Compatibility

    ksatterw

      I am building a computer for the first time.  I have just purchased an Core i7-920 processor and an Intel DX58SO motherboard.  I also purchased a package of three Corsair TR3X6G1600C9 memory modules.  The package for the memory says "Recommended for the Intel Core i7 Processors".  However this memory runs at 1.65v.  When I opened the box on the motherboard, there was a piece a paper that said only memory rated for 1.6v or lower should be used on this motherboard/processor.  Will these memory modules work with this motherboard, or should I return them for something that runs at 1.5v?
