Trying to decide between a couple RAM choices for my 2600k.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231473
(Easy 4 sticks with good price, but higher timings)

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB x2
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231468
(Again cheap price but higher timings, lower voltage however)

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB x2
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231476
(A little more but lower timings and unfortunately blue)

Mushkin Enhanced Redline 8GB x2
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226200

I have never used Mushkin or G.Skill before, as I always got Corsair in the past. Any suggestions or opinions on the brands and timings? I mention it but price isn't really an issue.

If it were up to me, then I would choose the $109 kit of Ripjaws X (the blue ones) because of the tighter timings.

(the 1.65V isn't much of an issue)

I would get the second one out of all those. Low voltage is the winner, higher frequency can make a little difference, but to be honest it's not really noticable only in benching. Have a little read at the sticky in the memory section, there should be three article explaining memory scaling on SB.

i've only personally seen F3-17000CL9D-8GBXM.. can do 2200MHz without changing timing.. so i recommend that.. but i think the mushkin should be very similar

the first two sets are the same IC's ..one is 16 gb the other 8gb<=i have this kit and i'm happy with it, will do CL10 1.575v (24/7),if you don't mind paying few extra bucks get the blue kit
(better OC potential )
