Default A RAM voltage question

The RAM I have in my computer is set at 1.8v...and the new RAM I want to get is 2.0v http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820141199 since I can't set the voltage in the BIOS will my computer auto adjust the voltage for me? Or should I just try and find more 1.8v RAM?

What motherboard do you have?

Most motherboards will adjust the voltage automatically If you get blue screens as you start up or the computer freezes on startup then you know the motherboard hasn't adjusted the voltage

I'd be very surprised if the Mobo doesn't auto adjust the Memory Voltage for the new RAM.

Some BIOS's may not show the settings you need to adjust but settings such as RAMV are usually set to auto for future upgrades but are just not shown.
