It is ok to use 1.35V RAM, machine will use less power and a bit cooler.

Yes. DDR3 RAM uses 1.5V and DDR3L RAM uses 1.35V
DDR3L RAM can be used in a DDR3 notebook, such as yours, as it is compatible and will use the 1,5V without any problem. DDR3 RAM can not be usd in a DDR3L machine as it will not have enough volts.
So basically there will be no difference if you use DDR3 or DDR3L RAM.
Hope it helps,
