Upgrading sig rig, should I get:

Samsung 30nm 16gb 4x4gb and run them at 2133/2400@1.5v (£73)

Or

Patriot Black Mamba 16gb 2x8gb 2133 and run them at 2133/2400@1.65v (£90)

I will most likely never need 32gb memory but with the patriot the option is there...

The Samsung is better memory, but it might be more stress on the IMC if you run 4x4. Either way, you won't see all that much of a difference in performance from a higher speed memory on Intel.

If you think you will probably go for 32GB in the future, go Patriot, if you don't think it's likely, it's probably a waste.

Get the samsung and be happy. No need to worry about tall heat spreaders, etc. Low voltage and they are great overclocking ram. Don't cheat yourself, treat yourself. Some don't like the brand appearance of them though. The like to get the fancy heat spreaders for a more uniformed color theme though. Thanks

Its a shame the Samsung are not 2x8gb as that would be an easy choice...

EDIT: Went with the Patriot in the end, like the idea of 2x8gb sticks so I can upgrade in the future and they look nicer lol, also got free Saturday delivery for tomorrow

Would of gone Samsung if they had 2x8gb sticks

Yeah, it would be great if they had 8GB sticks; 1155 doesn't work as well with 4 sticks in.
