Confused on memory w/ motherboard compatibility

Hey guys, just have a quick question on compatibility

I'm looking to get this motherboard w/ an i5-3570k.

GIGABYTE GA-Z77-D3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128543

I decided to get 8 gb of Corsair Vengeance Blue ram from Newegg but on their site they have 2 versions of the 8 gb ram. One set of ram says for Z77 Chipset but when I check it seems like it's not compatible with this motherboard.

The two versions are:
1. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145345
and
2. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233170

On the board it says it'll accept DDR3 2400(OC)/1600/1333/1066.

I think that the first set of ram will work, I just want to make sure.

Thanks guys.

  2. Its bit faster than the other one, a better choice.
