Corsair Vengeance/DDR3-1600 compatable with GA-890GPA-UD3H

My Rig;
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1075T
CPU Fan: Zalman CNPS9900 MAX
RAM: 8GB (2X4GB) Corsair Vengeance/ CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9/ DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800)
PSU: Corsair TX750W
Video Card: ASUS EAH5450

The MOBO GA-890GPA-UD3H supports upto 16 GB of RAM with speeds of DDR3-1866 (O.C.), DDR3-1333, DDR3-1066. I bought Corsair Vengeance/ CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9/ DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) from a local Micro Center that was selling it for the identical price of Corsair XMS 8GB DDR3-1333 (PC3-10666) CL9. The package of Corsair Vengeance/ CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9/ DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) does have "Phenom II" logo on the front implying that its compatable with the AMD Phenom II processors. However, the OEM website (i.e. Corsair website) does not list this memory as part of their AMD Phenom II compatable memories.

1) If I were to use Corsair Vengeance/ CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9/ DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) with motherboard (MOBO): GA-890GPA-UD3H and CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1075T without overclocking the RAM Slots and running it at default 1333 speed of the RAM slots then would there be any compatability issues: Between the Corsair Vengeance/ CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9/ DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) and MOBO GA-890GPA-UD3H RAM Slots running at default 1333 Mhz
2) If I were to overclock the RAM slots (of MOBO GA-890GPA-UD3H) to 1600 to make it compatable with Corsair Vengeance/ CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9/ DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) then would there be a compatability issue b/t CPU AMD Phenom II X6 1075T and/Or the MOBO GA-890GPA-UD3H and its RAM Slots

In Short is Corsair Vengeance/ CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9/ DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) compatable with motherboard GA-890GPA-UD3H and with CPU AMD Phenom II X6 1075T?
