Well if your up for spending some money here is a 2400mhz kit.

Will the 2011/x79 kits work on 1155/z77? For example: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220649 (1600mhz for ~$210)

Based on benchmarks, 2400mhz kits aren't fast enough (than 1600mhz+) to justify the price premium. 1600mhz seems to be the hot zone in terms of value.

You asked what the best was in your original post. If you're looking for the best for the money in real world applications then we need to know what you plan on doing! Give us a reply with that info and we'll get to it!

Sorry, you're right. To clarify, by best I mean the most sensible purchase (price point) with the most performance. As an example, $450 for 2400mhz 4x8gb sticks isn't as sensible as ~$210 1600mhz 4x8gb sticks. Timings and cas latency should be at least decent. The patriot linked above is decent at: Cas Latency9, Timing9-9-9-24.

I'm a multimedia content editor. I work with many applications (at least 2 running simultaneously) from maya, rhino, photoshop, after effects, premiere, etc. I'll be running i7-3770k overclocked under 4.5ghz (air) on a sabertooth z77, and 120-180gb cherryville intel SSD. When applicable, I'll use some ram as a ramdisk to run apps like photoshop or as a scratch disk. I likely will not overclock the ram. I'll be using 3770k's iGPU until I decide on a gtx 680 or wait for 780 (hoping of 6gb+ vram; Quadro 6000 isn't a sensible purchase). Desktop resolution is 3120x1920 (1200x1920 display 1; 1920x1200 display 2).

As of this date, I prefer lga1155 over 2011 due to value.

On a side note, it'll be nice to get this type of performance (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117261) on the mainstream product lineups, or at least the enthusiast classes.sonic.gif

well those 8 GB sticks are really going to heighten the Latency unless you want to pay a bit extra honestly CL9 1600 Mhz ram should be more than enough and will give you great performance for what you need. If you can't go with CL10 then you're looking at a minimum of a 30$ price jump from 249.99 to 279.99 for CL9 Sticks.

Both of these should fit your needs, they're currently the cheapest 4x8 kits available in 1600 Mhz DIMMs:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231490

Not sure if you're looking at other re/e-tailers but if you're looking at Newegg that's what I came up with being the cheapest depending on your Heat spreader requirements!
