Default RAM + MoBo question

So I was going to get this mobo:

but according to the manufacturers site, it:

3. Supports 1.8V DDR2 DIMMs

and all the ddr2-800 ram I look at is 1.9v or higher, and I was told it has to be 1.8 suggestions?

you can adjust RAM voltage via BIOS. download motherboard manual and see yourself all the BIOS tweakings u can do. thats what I do, before buying a montherboard, I download whole manual and layout diagrams for future hassle free assembly.

Intel Core2Quad 2.66Ghz 12MB L2-Cache
4096MB DDR Kingston Hyper-X
GigaByte GA-P35-DS3R
XFX 9600GT AlphaDog
Seagate 2 X 320GB SATA2
LG L246WH Flatron 24"

I'm thinking about going with this memory instead of ddr2-800:
Patriot 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 667 (PC2 5300)

it's pretty cheap and it sounds like it's really good/oc'able. anyone use it? ideas?
