Unhappy Ram Compatablity with this mobo?

Well guys i have this ASUS Mobo

and i was looking at this RAM

But im worried about Quality with these sticks Cuz of the Comment left there

Pros: Runs at 4-4-4-12 @ 2.1V with no errors in memtest 86+ on my Intel 975 XBX2. Should be fine for your average user.
Cons: Probably not for overclocking. Corsair pulled a bait and switch. They used high quality Micron D9 ICs in the early revisions that were sent to reviewers. They then switched to garbage ProMOS ICs that you typically find in el cheapo RAM so they could make more money. This is extremely deceptive and scummy on their part, and probably explains the high defect rate that others are reporting with this memory. I only learned about this recently, and feel a little bit ripped off.
Other Thoughts: The rebate is nice, but at its core this is basically value RAM that should already be cheap in the first place.

Now if anyone HAS this mobo or has known a person who has had this mobo plz tell me wat RAM he chose or u chose and plz help my chose a compatible brand
Thanks in Advance

NVM it was my montiors lighting

Also is OCZ compatible with this mobo?

AMD is Happy!
Intel is Pissed!
Europe is $1.45 Billion Dollar's Richer!

According to the Asus QVL list, that memory is compatible with your motherboard.

Corsair makes good quality products and backs them up with excellent customer service.
