G.Skill: $250 for 32GB, 11-13-13-31
http://www.ebay.com/itm/G-SKILL-Ares-Series-16GB-2-x-8GB-240-Pin-DDR3-SDRAM-DDR3-2400-PC3-19200-Desk-/380791592359?pt=US_Memory_RAM_&hash=item58a8f295a7
Team Xtreem: $300 for 32GB, 10-12-12-31
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Team-Xtreem-LV-16GB-2-x-8GB-240-Pin-DDR3-SDRAM-DDR3-2400-PC3-19200-Desktop-M-/291034876152?pt=US_Memory_RAM_&hash=item43c307c8f8
G.Skill: $340 for 32GB, 10-12-12-31
http://www.ebay.com/itm/G-Skill-16GB-TridentxDDR3-PC3-19200-2400MHz-Desktop-Memory-F3-2400C10D-16GTX-/221317114657?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3387872b21

The $250 CL11 kit wins on price, but loses on latency.
Team Xtreem is the cheapest CL10 kit, but has the downside of looking and sounding stupid.
G.Skill's CL10 kit is the most expensive but wins in terms of reputation.
Keep in mind the ratings are what the manufacturers rate as their maximum speed and minimum latency, but could probably be pushed further.
Which one should I get before the holiday sales end? I'm probably going to buy a set within a few hours (I think Newegg is in CA, so that gives me maybe three hours).

i vote is for gskill they have amazing support if you ever need to RMA my vote is for the Tridentx sticks they are really good sticks iv built a few systems with them and they overclock and undeclock pretty well i got some running at 2666 at 11-13-13-31 1.7v and also 1600 at 7-8-8-21 smile.gif

Note: the fins on the heatsinks are kinda sharp be careful not to cut yourself if you do decide to go with the TridentX sticks

I just realized an implication that applies to this situation that was brought up regarding a different set of sticks from Team Xtreem. The TridentX kit is single sided, whereas the Team Xtreem set, if the pictures are correct, are dual sided. This means the Team sticks will likely out perform the G.Skill sticks.

Here's some reviews of their other products; they seem mostly positive.

I'm now only comparing the Ares to the Xtreem, since they're the only dual sided ones. The advantage the Ares has is that there are more people using them, so there won't be this huge silence when I ask about what timings I should use for them. Sheesh, I can copy the timings and voltages from off of this review article:

Just missed a sale on the Gskill Trident 2400mhz CL10 16gb (2x8) for $108 at Newegg. OOS now.

Team Xtreem is most likely single sided so avoid them all together. Get the G Skills and i dont think i've ever seen a single sided pair of Trident X's.

The little thingies on the bottom look like they're wider spaced on the Xtreems than the single sided examples in that thread. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Compare this to how tightly spaced they are on the TridentXs. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Any way to confirm this?

Also, that same thread on SlickDeals says I can get 32GB of the Ares for around $225 if I use my Mastercard (pretty sure any Mastercard would work...but I've had mine for like four years...)

If you're going for 8Gb modules, then you shouldn't worry about single-sided modules as all desktop 8Gb sticks are dual sided.
I would go for the 2400C11 Ares here, the $50 you save can be used to improve some other components.

Apparently the sale on the Ares ended in between 3 and 4 EST when I was enrolling in the stinking Masterpass thing with a Visa card. frown.gif
Xtreem it is, then, dangit.

Tangential note on Masterpass Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Also bought Win8.1 x64 OEM (non-professional version) and nVidia's 3D glasses to max out the -10%. It can be done with a Visa card, btw.

Now I just need resources for overclocking the sticks on the FM2+ platform, mainly with the 7850 and ASRock UEFI.
