Hi! I just want to know which should i choose with the following memory modules:
[ Ripjaws ] F3-12800CL8D-8GBRM (4Gx2) 8-8-8-24-2N 1.6v
[ Ripjaws ] F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL (4Gx2) 9-9-9-24-2N 1.5v
[ SNIPER ] F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2 (4Gx2) 9-9-9-24-2N 1.25 Volts

I have dual-channel P55-GD80 motherboard. Thanks for all who would comment..

Those are the timing on the Sniper modules if you were wondering.
In all honest opinion I have always had G.Skill memory in my PC, never once had an issue.
They overclock great and run nice a cool. If you get the Sniper they are going to run even cooler due to the low voltages. If you don't mind spending the extra buck I'd get the Sniper as they are going to run just as fast and stay cooler leading to longer lifespan. But if you are pressed for a little bit a cash here and there I'd personally just get the Ripjaws with the higher review as they are both going to run very equally to each other, again voltage=temp. Either set you get it going to score above a 7 in windows index so you're not going to be disappointed either way.

Hey thanks for the post! Yeah im considering the SNIPER because it has lower voltage and the heatsink is shorter compared to the ripjaws and will fit without a hitch with my mobo. In terms of speed, is there any considerable difference between those 3? The only difference with them is with their timing or cas latency. They are all 1600Mhz. The F3-12800CL8D-8GBRM is almost 20% more expensive than with the other two by the way.

I'd honestly stay away from the F3-12800CL8D-8GBRM, the only thing that's making it more expensive in the tighter timings which you could easily make the other sticks do from within the BIOS. It really comes down to personally preference on which one you like the look of more and which one will fit the case better with your heatsink. Timings are the same, voltage is different but only gonna make things cooler, also I think the reason the Sniper is more expensive right now is cause it "JUST" came out. give it some time or get a %15 off code and you'll be in business.

I see. The price of [ Ripjaws ] F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL (4Gx2) and [ SNIPER ] F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2 (4Gx2) is almost the same here in my location so the better deal would be the SNIPER.
