Hi, They might work. Since the RAM slots are close to the CPU socket, they might not fit under the heatsink.
I've checked the Corsair configurator. They don't list compatible RAM kits for this ASUS board model. However, AsRock has a similar board. That's what Corsair lists as compatible:

Since they are all low profile kits, I would choose from that list.

The boards are similar, so the answer is the same.
I wouldn't choose a board to match specific RAMs, but viceversa.

The prices are the same.
What CPU heatsink would you use? The AMD stock one?
And by the way, what CPU?

It's what I would buy. It's up to you to decide.
