I would probably go for the G-Skill Sniper, since it's the cheapest. I don't think the difference between CL9 or CL8 will be visible when you have 8Gbs of it at 1600mhz.

I should've posted only the second and third kit but I wasn't sure maybe there was somethign I didn't know.

price difference of the two is huge so I am considering the third kit. is it worth it to get the second one? I'm really leaning towards the g-skill sniper

and btw. what intrigues me is the 1.25v rating on the g-skill sniper. what does it mean?

I think the site mistyped it, Newegg shows a 1.5v Voltage requirement for this. Also, the difference between the second and third option is negligible, not to mention that you could probably tighten the Sniper Ram to CL8 or CL7.

I just noticed there's only less than 9USD difference between newegg and the shops here in Manila. not bad imo I can prolly find even cheaper prices
post #8 of 9
I think the 1.25V can reach 1600 CL8 at the regular 1.5V, maybe less
post #9 of 9
i have the second kit running at 1.5v
