OK, I've read the documentation on Intel's web site about what memory is supported for this board, however I'm a little confused about if a specific brand and type is supported so I figured I'd "ask the experts" on this board...
1. Will the following RAM work on this machine? Kingston HyperX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory XMP Model KHX16C9K2/16X
2. This board supports the Core i7 3770K processor but I've read the i7 3770 is a little cheaper because it's not unlocked. I'm not an overclocker or an extreme gamer and have no plans to, nor have I ever, overclocked the CPU. Would I be OK with the slightly cheaper 3770 in this board?
Any help on these questions would be appreciated!!!

In regards of the processor, if you are not planning on running the processor out of specifications, there is no need to purchase the "K" version. Here you can compare both of these processors and their features:
