PC3-10600 DIMMs are of a higher voltage that the "low voltage" DDR3L Dimms.  Can I still use them anyway?  My boss bought the higher voltage without realizing. Thanks.

Pretty sure it won't work properly as the system will not provide enough power. If it does appear to work, it won't work reliably under heavy usage. You really should exchange for low voltage ones.

i agree with the above - if they work at all, (which is doubtful) they won't be reliable
since all sellers offer a warranty  -just exchange them

They do work, seemingly just fine, but I can't have degraded performance so I will get low voltage ones.  Thanks.
