the cpu voltage and the ram voltage afik on amd are not bound

the difference is not that big, only 0.1 volts, supposedly you can set one to work slower by lowering the voltage and setting ram speed lower or try to set both with higher voltage but probably will not be a stable setup, possibly will not even boot or damage one the lower voltage modules

how big is the ram you bought?

the voltage difference is not that big, and as you see it works, it is your decision in the end

sell the old 1.5v kit, is not the end of the world, you can also keep it for another machine, or as spare parts when you need to discard a ram problem on another pc
