Smile Ram Compatible With Sabertooth Z77?

Recently, i had the following build list:

CPU Cooler:

As you can see, i had chosen the black low profile corsair vengeance (16gb 4x4gb) memory kit. Before i went ahead and purchased everything i read manual for compatible ram kits. I noticed that what seems to be the same EXACT memory but in blue works but not the black. I was wondering if the model ram CML16GX3M4A1600C9 would work on the motherboard ASUS Sabertooth Z77. I'm a high school student working two jobs over the summer and i don't have much money. I've been working hard to earn this money to finally build a good PC. I was hoping that someone could tell me if that RAM would work with my motherboard. If not, is there any black vengeance low profile kits that would work (16GB)? Thank you!

The RAM should be compatible... There are so many different RAM modules out there that to list them all for your motherboard would take up 20 pages in the manual.

Edit: Worst case scenario you can send it back.
