OCZ Platinum.

Average timings, lower voltage than the Corsairs, cheaper.

And the lower voltage won't cause issues with the Asus P8P67 Motherboard?

Honestly this really stresses me out.

1. I know OCZ aren't in the RAM business anymore, however they're still honouring their lifetime warranties.

2. G.skill Ripjaws? What the **** man, last I checked, G.Skill Ripjaws were not listed in my original post. I have the choice between those two ram sets, I didn't think anyone would be confused by that.

Stick with these two. This is for SB so all you need is a stable 1600 C9 ram even a 1333 ram. With OCZ situation and only £4 different, I would go for XMS3.
