Thanks for posting the data sheet.
It looks like it runs JEDEC default at 1.5v. I don't know why Newegg lists it as 1.65v.

So you could use the RAM.
If you install just 2 sticks the system will use the RAM in dual channel mode.
If you install all 3 sticks it will run, but in single channel mode.

Does this matter? Depends on what you are doing. If you are running programs that can benefit from loading into a lot of RAM addresses then more RAM will be beneficial. If you are running programs that do a lot of reads and writes then you will see the benefit with dual channel mode. Frankly, the average computer user would probably not notice a difference either way.

You can experiment and learn.
Or just RMA and get what you need. Your choice.
