Are these Ripjaws good or overpriced?

Money isn't that much an issue but I wouldn't want to overpay too much for anything. The kit is rated at 1866 CAS 8 with 1.5V. Anyone know about this kit? Can it be pushed further? It is more expensive than the DDR3 2133 Ripjaws:

Bag both of those and go with this Samsung set.

You can get just as good or better clocks by overclocking these sticks. Plus they are way cheaper. thumb.gif

I know about the Samsungs but I don't like the way they look. Plus, it is hit or miss whether the Samsungs can do what the G-Skills I linked to are rated for.

Well, the 1866 are CAS 8 w/ 1.5v and the 2133 are CAS 9 w/ 1.65v.

I would say that these are the exact same sticks but are binned differently. I'd think that the 1866 could handle 2133 CAS 9 with 1.65v, but the 2133 might not be able to do 1866 CAS 8 at 1.5v. So, go for the 1866 and you should be able to clock them better than the 2133. But I'm no expert.

most people can get 8-8-8-24 on 1.55v. i use theses with xmp and there great.

Isn't speed more important than timings for SNB/SNB-E/IVB?

The Samsung sticks can do 2000+, so don't you worry.
