I do think the G.skill RAM is very nice as my current 1333 kit is currently running at 1920Mhz 9-10-9 which is very good IMO, but that isnt a guarantee by any means.
I think this Samsung kit is the new standard for performance RAM. The only thing people may not like is that there is no heatsinks, but it doesn't need it.

Also forgot to add, G.Skill has been known to use Samsung modules anyways so you may as well save yourself the money and buy straight from the source.

I wanted 16gb dual channel so this doesn't really help.

well it does if you buy 2 kits, you will have 4 x 4GB sticks running in dual channel. but the trade off is more stress on the IMC but still not an issue and you could easily run them at 1600 CL7 with nice volts JFYI.. smile.gif

At $35 a kit that would be $70. I got the two ripjaws sticks for $45

I honestly just wanted to make sure I'm not bottlenecking the processor while gaming. ill try overclocking it & seeing how much speed I can get out of it and comparing it to the overall performance of the cpu I guess.

The latest CPUs are optimized for DDR3-1600 CL11, so it is best if you get this spec or higher so you can fully utilize the throughput of your CPU. If you use DDR3-1333, it may be slightly bottlenecked, but not much.

If you want to take advantage of overclocking, then you can raise CPU frequency and DRAM frequency to boost throughput greater than Intel standard. On a somewhat side topic, people purchase DDR3-2133, 2400+, and although Intel CPUs that can support it will work just fine, there is no noticeable performance gain if the CPU frequency is stock. This is a common misconception I see all the time. People complain and put out false info about how faster RAM doesn't really do anything.. but in reality they just don't know the purpose and use of high speed RAM.

Basically, to prevent bottleneck and fully utilize the performance of the CPU without overclocking, any DDR3-1600 kit will be best. Anything lower may cause slight bottlenecking, and anything higher may be unnecessary if you do not plan to overclock CPU frequency.

Cheers
