The OP is looking for RAM with CL7 or below.

@ OP,

In all honesty there are a lot of great kits out there but if you are looking for the best at the $135 range, get the G.Skill PI's at 1600MHz. They have the tightest timings at stock compared to all other G.Skill kits and can typically be set with timings as low as 6-6-6-18 1T still at 1600MHz. The only issue is clearance with your CPU heatsink. If you have the clearance then I would highly recommend.

EDIT: If you don't have the clearance with any of the RAM slots for the PI kit, then I would go with the G.Skill ECO's that PowerTrip recommended. Same timings as the G.Skill Ripjaws can operate at but with significantly less voltage.

ECO's won't be useful unless you overclock to DDR3-1800. With your current CPU, you probably won't be able to reach this.

The blue RipJaws RM's are currently on sale. They were barely above $100, like $105 or something... so that's a good deal.

But just remember, with that motherboard, you probably won't be capable of DDR3-1600 CL7 anyway, so I'd probably go for something like the RM's since they are cheap.

Save money, get max performance...

The motherboard isn't the limiting factor in terms of CAS latency that can be set. It can be a limiting factor in terms of clock speed for RAM, but that is also determined by the IMC built into the CPU. The actual RAM kit would be what limits the CAS latency that can be set. With the G.Skill PI's that the OP grapped, the stock timings will put him at DDR3 1600 with 6-8-6-24 timings. A little tweaking on the memory voltage and I wouldn't be surprised if he could get them down to 6-6-6-18 or 6-6-6-20 at a 1T command rate.
