That advice is right on. They must be built right.
Those rims can have burrs in the rim holes where the spoke head sits-Cane Creek version, or where the nipple sits Velocity version. I made a small tool with a pilot that goes into the hole and removes that burr, only use light hand pressure. They are nice rims and build up nice if you aren't too quick to tension before you get the stress out.
Over time they might develop slight cracks around the spoke holes but that took 25,000 miles for me. Most rims will fail here even the Shimano 7800's.
These will be a good choice.
Provided they are well build, get them.
I run a similar build with lighter rims. 9-speed is better than 10 for CX but make sure your shifters work!
