I purchased an ASUS P8Z77-V Pro motherboard and an Ivy Bridge i7 3770K processor. The user guide for the motherboard has a list of compatible RAM, but I can't seem to find any similar list for the CPU. If I purchase RAM that is listed as compatible for the Z77 mobo, is it guaranteed to work with the processor?

The short answer (and long one too) is yes it will work if it meets mobo specs. Intel may spec 1.5 V for SB CPUs but some mobos (including mine) will run 1.6 V RAM.
So as long as the motherboard's manual says the ram is compatible, I shouldn't worry about it? Because the manual says this 8GB Corsair Vengance memory is compatible, yet an article on Corsair's website implies that it's not compatible with Ivy Bridge Processors.
