No. None in particular.
The Sandy Bridge processors and motherboards seem to work well with a variety of RAM brands. Corsair is good stuff. You just need to confirm you have the right Corsair and I don't see anything in the specs you posted that say "not compatible".
I normally use Crucial RAM, but that's only because I can go to the Crucial website and enter my motherboard model--the Crucial configurator then spits out a guaranteed-compatible RAM choice.
That setup will use probably under 150 watts, plus whatever the graphics card uses.
