Which one should I buy?

post #1 of 6

Hi! I'm looking for some ram to go with my i5 2500k that I'm going to order shortly. Which one of these should I go with?

Motherboard in question:

I'm only looking for 8GB RAM in total, so obviously I won't be able to take advantage of both channels with that single stick.

Which one would you recommend?

SPD's aren't set to 1600 by default. Sounds like a marketing scam to me.

"The SPDs are programmed to JEDEC standard latency DDR3-1333MHz timing of 9-9-9 at 1.5V."

Speed is largely irrelevant, and they can and will run at 1600. They're the cheapest quality 2x4GB set I could find.
