They will work, but I would make one change. There is no benefit to getting 16 GB of ram unless you are doing some very specific things in a 64 bit environment. You will have better performance getting 8GB of 2133 memory.

If the build is for gaming buy 8GB RAM si more than enough. If you need for work and you need a lot of RAM then buy 2 X 8GB and leave room for a future upgrade to 32GB if you will need more RAM.

I ask the guys that reccomend that ram and m/b to me on EggXpert and 2 of them said it would work fine..I told them i looked and it was showing a LGA2011 and i have a intel 2600K and they said it would work fine..I also mentioned the ram says Quad & the ram im running now says dual..said that didnt matter also...I had an issue with the ram not being matched on the Asus P8Z68-VLE but changed the 2 matching sets to 1&3 2&4 and see no problem anymore' but newegg said they would give me a matching set like i have of 4..I may just keep the board i have and order this same ram..Would you go with the 1600 insted of the 1866 like i have now..Corsair was even telling me to turn it down to 1600 and it would run more stable..Here is the ram im running in the asus right now> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Would i be better off with this 1600> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Buy the CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... for 15$ you have 16GB not 8GB RAM.
That Asrock i don't know if is better, depends what you expect from your PC. Asrock have PCIE 3.0 and if in the future you will upgrade the CPU with Ivy Bridge you will benefit the speed of PCIE 3.0 ( in theory ) with Asus no , because it have PCIE 2.0. With Asrock you can do SLI , Crossfire because is SLI, Crossfire ready at x8/x8 speed. With Asus you don't have that option.
Now depends on you , what you want to do in future with your PC.
