Crucial Ballistix @ $73
Specs: DDR3 PC3-12800 • 8-8-8-24 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1600 • 1.5V • 512Meg x 64

My build:

i5 4670K
Asus Z87-A
R9 280x (Planned)
HDD 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM (Planned)
2x4GB 1600MHz RAM (Planned)
Cooler master evo 212 (Planned)
3 Case fans (Planned)
Corsair TX 750 v2

Are there any problems with this memory spec wise? Also Is there any incompatibility issues between my planned build and the RAM? My biggest concern is the heatsink and possibly the GPU. Also since its a 10% off sale for RAM on Newegg is there any better RAM available for around the same price? Thanks for your time.

Ram is fine, and will work, and it's a good price, especially for a CL8 set ;) 

Best solution

No, there is no compatibility issue.

Asus Z87-A motherboard supports DDR3 PC3-12800 • 8-8-8-24.

Go without any hesitation.
