Interesting!

Since I have G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 2133 at CAS 9, I am thinking about upgrading to 2400Mhz ones.

Upgrade to:
G.SKILL Trident X Series 32GB at CAS 10

or
G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB at CAS 9

What do you think of these? I am welcoming to other suggestions.

Thanks

My motherboard is Asus Z87 Deluxe.
