Best RAM for an Asus Maximus IV Extreme

My current PC has died so I am looking to build a new rig.

Currently looking at the Asus Maximus IV Extreme with an i7 2600k Intel processor probably with a Coolermaster V8 fan.

At the moment I'm looking at the Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz CL9 1.5V Non-ECC Unbuffered (CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9) RAM but wasn't sure if this was the best to go for.

I can't see a list of supported RAM on the Asus site.
