The ripjaws are nice, I am no RAM expert though.

Also, can I join pulling that sexy trigger?

If it's the same price then it looks like a better deal because it has lower timings than either at 7-8-7. One thing to note however is that it runs at 1.6v whereas the other two we were talking about run at 1.5v. This isn't a huge issue but Intel specify the memory on P67 chipsets at 1.5 + or - 5% if I recall correctly meaning Intel would prefer a max voltage of like 1.58 but some motherboard vendors have listed Ram sets with 1.65 on their approved memory list so it's up to you but I personally would stick to 1.5v although I'm sure just as many people would feel safe with 1.65. The Ripjaws X series is designed for P67 but you may want to check with MSIs certified memory list on their website before buying.


EDIT: Couldn't find a MSI certified memory list for your board but the best I could do is this on their product page "Supports four unbuffered DIMM of 1.5 Volt DDR3 1066/1333/1600*/2133*(OC) DRAM, 32GB Max" So that would make me lean even more towards only 1.5v but still like I said many others might feel perfectly fine going with 1.6 so it's up to you but I think the $130 8-8-8-24 kit I linked to earlier would be the best and safest bet.

EDIT 2: Here is a combo with the 1.5v 8-8-8-24 kit for $15 off, this is definitely what I would go for. They also have the 1.5v 9-9-9-24 in a combo here it's up to you to make the call of how much you want to spend but I would go with 1.5v either way.
