Memory for ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3

I'm considering using an ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 motherboard in a new build and would like to install 16 GB of memory using 2 8GB memory modules, which would allow me to later expand to 32 GB if desired. I've looked at the ASUS Qualified Vendor List for this board and the only 8 GB module listed costs 163.00 which is out of the question. I've seen a Corsair 16 GB kit on Newegg.com (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10) which costs about $77.00. Is there a way to verify whether this memory is compatible with the ASUS motherboard? If not, can someone suggest an 8 GB memory module that is known to be compatible and less expensive than the one on the ASUS QVL list?
