Calibration will change the color temperature of the monitor to whatever color space you are calibrating it to.

For example, the color temperature of both the sRGB and Adobe RGB color spaces is 6505K. Although it depends on your monitor and calibrator, it might be preferable to change to that value in the monitor settings before calibration.

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I can change the Kelvin in just one of the two monitors. I am not sure which Kelvin the second monitor has, it isn't mention anywhere in the settings or on their site. So best thing to do is using the same Kelvin for both to be sure?

Calibration will change the white point of the monitor. If you calibrate both monitors, you'll end up with the same Kelvin value for both.
