Question Rampage IV Formula 32GB kit

I'm getting the Rampage IV Formula X79 and certainly follows the question:
Which memory should I get?
The system will be:

Motherboard - Asus Rampage IV Formula X79 http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Int...V_Formula/#MSL

CPU -Intel Core i7-3930K
http://ark.intel.com/products/63697/...z)?wapkw=3930k

Memory - Corsair (?)
Vengeance 32GB SKU# CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10
http://www.corsair.com/memory/intel-...4x1600c10.html

or

Dominator 32GB SKU# CMP32GX3M4X1600C10
http://www.corsair.com/memory/intel-...4x1600c10.html

Will the ram kit run without any need o OC in it's stock speeds?
Will it have some compatibility issue of any kind?
Will I be able (ram wise) to OC them?
Is there a difference in performance or lifetime?

I've read the specifications and looked for reviews and posts here, the QLV manual from Asus, but all I could get is that they are the same, but that can't be right. Just cosmetic difference?

Thank you guys for the help!

1) Whe you activate the XMP profile for 1600mhz it will indeed overclock your CPU a little bit. It's needed to run your memory at that frequency, even though your CPU supports 1600mhz memory.

You shouldn't with either kit. However the Vengeance modules were designed for the SandyBridge platfor and may be a better choice.

Corsair can only guarantee rated speeds. Nothing more. The only way to find out is try and no two sets will overclock the same if they overclock at all.

Not really. They are both pretty close in specs, but may be made from different IC's that may or may not help performance or overclocking abilities.

Thank you so much.
One more thing, how about density?
One model is high density, other doesn't. What is the difference and impact on the system?

We would not suggest mixing memory and these parts would be the same basic memory IC configuration and both are High density 512M X 8 memory IC's are using to make these parts
