Have I been recomended the correct memory?

Hi! I recently purchased a msi NF750-G55 sli motherboard and my supplier recomended the Corsair TW3X4G1600C9DHX G ddr3 ram ver9.1 (which I bought). I am concerned that it might not be compatible as the motherboard has a memory rating of 1.5v and the ram I bought is rated at 1.80v.

I am not in the position to test it yet as the system is yet to be built but if it is not compatible, rather than unpack the memory and then do a return, it would be easier to rma it still sealed.

As the motherboard has only recently been released there isn't much info on the msi forum so if anyone here can give advice it would be much appreciated.

According to the CPU Specifications for your CPU

Support for unregistered DIMMs up to PC2 8500(DDR2-1066MHz) and PC3 10600 (DDR3-1333MHz) – AM3 only

 

So you should be able to run the memory at DDR1333 just load setup defaults and set the memory Voltage and leave all of the settings at AUTO then test the system with http://www.memtest.org.

Thanks Ram Guy but just to clarify what you said: -

You suggest that I change in bios the voltage from the motherboards quoted 1.50v ram to 1.80v. or should I allow the motherboard to set the memory voltage at 1.50v.
