Alienware M17x R4 - RAM support for 3rd Gen i7

I am in the process of purchasing an Alienware M17x R4 laptop from the DELL site. The M17x R4 sports the 3rd Gen i7's.

However, I wish to upgrade the RAM once I receive it.

The RAM I wish to purchase can be found here: http://www.auspcmarket.com.au/info/CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10/1693/ 

According to the information, this RAM has been built around the 2nd Gen i5's & i7's. Now because my laptop is a 3rd Gen i7, I was wondering whether there will be any compatibility issues with that RAM?

If it's not compatible, could anyone point me in the direction of something that is compatible, and is a good make and model.


Thank you for your help!
