Could someone please recommend compatible ram for this combination?

Asus P8Z77-V LK mobo
i5-3570k CPU
CM Hyper 212 + Evo cooler
Gtx 670 gpu

I am thinking low profile sticks may be needed. I would prefer an 8gb kit.

I do plan on overclocking the cpu and gpu.

What do you recommend?

What store/online store are you looking to buy from? What country are you in?

Sorry, I should of mentioned that.

USA. newegg or any similar is fine, i am also near a microcenter but their prices tend to be higher on ram.

Something like these or would be what you're looking for. 2x4gb sticks, leaving you with upgrade space and 9-9-9-24 timings. Sorry for the Canadian newegg, it doesn't like when I switch to the US one.

If you don't see either of those in the US site (you should, but maybe not) then what you want to look for is 9-9-9-24 timings on DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) ram running at 1.5v. With that CPU cooler you also need to watch for the size of the heatsink on the ram. I'm using x 3 right now and the fan JUST fits over top. I'm talking like 1-2 mm of clearance.
