I tend to get G.Skill for my ram needs. I love their lifetime no questions asked warranty and excellent customer service. It make's my life easier when building PC's for people... I don't care who make's the RAM, some time's your going to get faulty sticks, no way around it. Muskin and Corsair are also popular. I have no experiance with muskin, but know that corsair is amazing porduct even if on the pricey side of things.
When you know what CPU and mobo you want we could all help you select the proper RAM for the best possible overclocking experience on your rig. Best of luck man!
Most likely it will be Haswell or Piledriver. But that doesn't help us at all. The only semblance of a clue I can find is when Trinity releases, though it is a separate platform from Piledriver, it may give me a clue to if the cpu reacts to Low Latency or High Clocks.
I'm a BIG gskill fan, but I'm looking for something more than your standard PSC ram or what have you. And not the Ares, but OC chips, like the 30nm Lo-Vo Samsung sticks. They cost $50 for 8gb and can clock upwards of 2200mhz with next to nothing voltage compared to the prices of the quad channel doms from Corsair that cost 10x more!
