Default I shouldn't get any problems, right?

I have two sticks of:
Corsair Vengeance Blue CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9 4GB 1X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Memory - CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9B

Due to my hyper evo 212, if I want to upgrade my ram, without touching the hyper evo 212, I will need some low profile memory. Would that be 100% compatible with what I already have? If not 100%, should it work anyways? Pretty sure it is basically the same just without the large heatsink.
Corsair Vengeance Blue Lowprofile 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Dual Channel Memory Kit - CML8GX3M2A1600C9B

Also, you can move the fan up a lil to give extra clearance.. IIRC the heatsink itself doesn't actually block.

Yea, I could move the fan up a touch, or toss it on the other side, but if the low profile works, might as well use it I suppose.
