Hmm, they seem to all be CL9 1.5v 1600MHz kits.

Probably the only difference is the heatspreaders, underneath they are likely identical sticks.

Which one do you think would be the best though?, Or are they all basically the same?

+rep though, Very helpful, Would of never thought of heatspeaders

And i think the only other difference would be the warranty, the 2nd and 3rd have lifetime, while the 1st one has no warranty

I'd go with the newest ones, don't think there are any rare ICs like Hypers in the old Ripjaws so you're not losing out. Snipers or RipjawsX, Snipers heatspreaders are lower so if clearance is an issue go with those. They should really all perform the same though.

I've been wondering this too, as i need to upgrade a few sticks of ripjaws i have in another rig. I just have the standard ripjaws, but the snipers look pretty sick.

So you guys pretty much think they all have the same performance?

Hmm, Might go with the RipjawsX

Heh, seems you bet me to the question.

Although, I would like to know something. The timing on those ram all seem to be the same. But I've also been looking at this set:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233144

I've read somewhere that RAM timing is better when it's less. The timing on the Corsair Vengeance is 8-8-8-24. Wouldn't that be technically better? Or are the G.SKILL RAM kits that AMDrocks posted better?
