+1 for the tridents. I have the exact kit youre looking to buy, they're awesome, give lots of headroom and you get really tighten the timings on it. i ran @ 1604mhz @ 6-7-6-18.

The ripjaws are great alternative. but imho, that's all it is, an alternative to the tridents.

I got the Tridents and I really do love them. Havnt had any issues with them yet. But they both are the same damn thing. Pick which one looks better to your eye.

Trident > RipJaws barely, but if you are space limited, RipJaws may be the choice since it has shorter heat spreaders.

Thread Starter 
Since the difference was so minimal I decided to go with the Ripjaws since they are cheaper and more aesthetically pleasing.

Big bump!

I'm considering the following combo:

Asus M4A88TD-V EVO
AMD Phenom II x6 1090t
CM Hyper 212+
G.Skill Trident 1600 2x4GB

Can I get away with the tall Trident memory heat sinks with the 212+ or will I need to go with the shorter Ripjaw series? I don't know if this mobo uses slots 1/3 or 2/4 for two sticks of memory. I plan to put the fan on the side away from the memory slots.

Anyone have some experience with this combo or something similar? Thanks!
