I recently purchased a new mb (Asus P8H77-V) and I thought I had compatible memory, but now I am not so sure. Below is a link to the mb. I can sure use some assistance finding 2 x 8GB (16GB total) in low profile, if possible. No overclocking.

Not sure what else is needed.....thanks.

The case is fine. The stock CPU cooler is fine as long as you don't overclock. If you use the stock cooler, any of the suggested/discussed memory will work as height clearance will not be an issue with the stock cooler.

Since you said you needed "low profile" that is what I suggested.

The Corsair you looked at will definitely get in the way of many aftermarket heatsinks. The G-Skill (my preferred brand with Corsair being the number 2 brand) could be too tall as well.

We would need to know what heatsink you plan to use to make a more qualified recommendation.

Sorry about the mixed message; the fact is, I am not sure I even need an aftermarket cpu cooler.
I will be using an unclocked i7-3770 on the mb above in my current 5 year old enclosure (see link below)....what do you think?

Terrific! That's great news....I will order the Corsair today as the price is quite aggressive.

Thanks very much for the help : )

@COL,

Just for curiosity sake, if you were to choose one of the three memory sticks for my particular mb, which one would you prefer?
