Hello I am doing my first computer build, and I am not sure if Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 ram will work on my ASUS P8H61-M Pro Motherboard.

Welcome to Tom's Forum! :) 

Work yes, work at DDR3-1600 frequency no.

Your MoBo supports DDR3 1333/1066, so getting DDR3-1600 would be a few wasted bucks.....

Before I go further....did you choose H61 or it was just the right price range ?Read about what the different chipsets mean to you here:

Whilst this is a great feature it is worth noting the integrated graphics are not much cop and only really suited to HD video playback and very basic gaming .....

The downside of a H67 chipset is it supports very limited overclocking even if an unlocked ‘K’ Series CPU (i5 2500K & i7 2600K) is installed. To the overclockers, this is a completely no go chipset, but for everyone building a sandy bridge system on a budget it makes a great choice.

So in that regard, if you move to P67 or Z68, the tall RAM would be a concern as the memory you picked if you are planning on OC'ing, will likely hit the 3rd party CPU cooler ya would use.

The F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL is the same as the Crucial and Corsair posted earlier; DDR3-1333 CAS 9.
