RAM Compatibility

I'm planning to buy an asus m5a97 r2, and I'm wondering  whether the corsair vengence 8gb DDR3 1600 mHz will work on this motherboard. For the processor, I'm getting the Amd FX-6300. 

I'm pretty sure it will be fine. Did you check the RAM support list from ASUS?

Yes it is.

No I haven't gotten to doing that.
