Default Post or Boot? Preemptive RAM problem

Does Post and boot mean the same thing?

I just bought a pair of Mushkin HP-8500 for a PK5-E wifi board.

I've read that DDR2 default volts are 1.8 but this RAM needed 1.85v to "boot" according to Mushkin HP2-8500 2GB Memory Kit Review

Will I need another set of DDR2 to post and set the correct volts. in the bios?

1) No, they don't

Power-on self-test - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

2) Probably not, I haven't heard of somebody needing to do that for RAM, but you never know.

Don't worry, you'll be just fine. All 3 pairs of Mushkin sticks that I have can boot at 1.8V.
