We really don't know so much about the platform. Yes the RAM in question would work and would be fine but personally as I'm also looking to upgrade to X79/LGA2011 I'd say wait. Who knows what we'll find out about the whole platform? maybe the IMC doesn't like the specific chips etc.
Too little information to make a purchase. At least for me.
