The QVL for the Extreme4 is here. These would be a safe bet if you stick to a quality name like G.Skill.

Yeah, that set will work. There is usually a bunch of deals on RAM every week at your price range. It's a little rarer to see them drop down below that, though it happens (like that $40ish 8GB G.SKILL set on newegg you were talking about)

not going to lie, why would you want to get 4 sticks of ram when you can get 2 and upgrade to 4sticks with twice the amount of ram later.

These are QVL and nice for the price right now ($59.99 shipped).
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231461

These are also QVL and cheaper ($46.98 shipped).
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231319

They're 2x4s, which IMO would be a better choice than 4x2s.

Asrock extreme 4 , least problem out of all the p67 board. 1 click and it oc you to 4.8 ghz with very respectable voltage. I tried the auto-oc feature and then oced manually, for 4,8 ghz both methode required nearly identical voltage.
As ROCK!
