Reviews of memory for that Motherboard model...
In reply to philmar, May 2, 2013

I'd go 2x8GB (versus 4x4GB).  That way, you'll have free slots if you decide to add more memory later.

One good way to tell if memory is going to work OK is by searching through customer reviews of desktop memory at newegg.com for a specific MB model.   For example, here's a search of desktop memory reviews using a search for P8Z77-V Pro (which is what I understand you ordered for a MB):

http://www.newegg.com/FeedBack/CustratingAllReview.aspx?DEPA=0&N=40000147&Order=5&Pagesize=&Page=1&Keywords=P8Z77-V+Pro

Since one customer with that motherboard model said this set of 2x8GB works fine in that MB (scroll through those reviews and you'll see it), and newegg.com has 15% off Promo Code for it right this minute (good through May 6), I'd probably get it (since after the promo code, your cost would be down to $106.24 delivered for 2x8GB 1.5v 1600mhz DDR3 9-9-9 CL9 type memory, which is fast enough.

If the Promo Code isn't visible on the listing page (it is  for me, but I'm signed into my account there), you'll find it on this e-mail specials page:
