can the difference ram voltage destroy my computer components?
8GB ddr3 1600 1.5v
8gb ddr3 1600 1.35v

with cpu-z
it said dual and can read 16gb
and they have the same timings table /specifications

my motherboard asus p8h67m pro

i dont see any problem, but i want to make sure about it

can increase the voltage (1.35 to 1.5) fix the problem?
if it can solve it, how to increase the ram voltage? i dont understand with the bios setting

Would not destroy your computer however if they are different voltage wise then the differance could mean a mismatch. Best to stick as close to what the manufacturers spec regarding voltage and your settings in Bios will be under AI Tweaker menu>DRAM_Voltage. Change from Auto to manual and set voltage.
1.35V - 1.5V can help with stability.

i changed it in bios, but the ram with 1.35 v, doesnt change to 1.5v
 
If your RAM are working then your lucky especially being from differing manufacturers and if you have stability issues then you know why.
Will they both run at 1.35V or do you have to have 1.5V ?
Main thing is to keep an eye on temperatures.
1.5V for DIMMs is the JDEC standard so I don't think theirs any thing to worry about IMO.
