I have a question if some RAM modules are compatible with a certain CPU and motherboard.

The motherboard is ASUS P7P55D-E LX and the CPU is Intel Core i7 870.
Would "Corsair Dominator DHX DDR3 1333MHz 16GB" work with this?

I have only a link to a local webstore in swedish, but here is some of the spec:

4 x 4GB XMS3 DHX
DIMM 240 pin
1333 MHz ( PC3-10666 )
1.6 V

There shall be 16 GB of RAM in this machine.

Yes it's compatible but complete overkill for mainstream purposes.
Most people run 4GB.
8GB for video,photo,work etc.
Whatever floats your boat!

Yes of course for most purposes, however this PC (not mine actually) shall be used as a workstation being able to run many large virtual machines for testing. There for the need of unusual large amount of memory.

I have a very similar build myself, but only 8 GB so far, will get 8 GB more soon. :) 

Thanks for your confirmation about the compability.
