Yep it should be fine.
SB mobo's prefer 1.5v ram kits that's why the new kits from Corsair(Vengeance)
Gskills(Ripjaws X) come with that spec.
However the old Ripjaws will run at advertised speeds once you adjust the dram voltage in bios.
My Ripjaws worked fine once adjusted to 1.6v in bios.
Do not exceed 1.65v or risk damaging cpu and components.

The GSkill ram you listed first is fine and 1.6v not 1.65v as listed on many retailer websites.

You could buy the Corsair ram but it's very tall and not the most compatible with many aftermarket cpu coolers.
It would be fine if you never plan on adding more then two sticks.
Or you could get this.
