Ram Compatibility Question
I have a Asus P8 H77-M CSM motherboard that has compatibility with the Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C7R(XMP) and I have bought a Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233180&Tpk=CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R. Asus said that they might be compatible, but I just want to be sure. Corsair didn't respond to any of my suppory tickets. Sorry if this is a stupid question, this is my first build. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for replying so quick and yeah I am gonna be cautious about the cpu cooler.

If it's not too late you could always send it back and get the 'LP' version instead. If not, then you could consider water cooling or try finding a cooler that works for that ram.
