For compatibility the motherboard and the CPU are important too. So, what models? And do not mix kits. 8GB are enough if not running memory demanding applications.

I would choose from these listed compatible kits (see all 4 pages) http://www2.corsair.com/configurator/product_results.as...
And again, either 2 similar kits or only one.
And instead of 2 kits of 2x4, it's better 1 kit of 4x4.

Well,it would an 8gb and a 4gb pack that would total out to the 12gb I wanted. The Corsair Vengeance I desire appears to be comparable.

I wouldn't mix the kits. Why don't you go for a 4x4 kit? And why necessarily 12GB?

When all 4 slots used, the load increases. That's why it's better to use kits recommended by the manufacturer. They have been tested and are guaranteed to work with the board.
