So I saw an upgrade (or what I assume is one) to my ram (from DDR3-1600 to 2400) that wouldn't cost me any more money. My question is, when I did that, I got a compatibility warning that I am concerned about. It reads as follows:

"G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 Memory operating voltage of 1.65V exceeds the Intel Haswell CPU recommended maximum of 1.5V+5% (1.575V). This memory module may run at a reduced clock rate to meet the 1.5V voltage recommendation, or may require running at a voltage greater than the Intel recommended maximum."

Should I just go back down to the 1600? Also, if more information is needed, this is what I have put together with the help of people here thus far.

Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4Ghz
Asus 787-A ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
MSI Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card
XFX 550W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply

It basically said that it may or may not do anything.

That is literally translated.

You're welcome.
