I would recommend the Ripjaws too, but seeing that you have the Hyper 212+ the spreader might block your cooler. The Corsair might be an alternative for you.

The ripjaw's are decent overclockers, and the vengeance are terrible overclockers.

Edit: After looking at the ram more closely it turn out that they both use the same Hynix memory chips, so they should both OC the same. I was thinking the Ripjaws were the CL8 kit that have Powerchip memory in them.

I can vouch for the terrible OCing results for Vengeance memory. My Corsairs are rock solid at 1600MHz but won't even post at 1866MHz. Still great memory but not for OCing.

I am building an 8150/Sabertooth 990FX rig later this year and will probably go with the Ripjaws....

G.Skill if you have the room for the spreaders, they will clear for a Hyper 212+, or the low profile if you think you need more room.

I have built 4 systems with the G.Skill Ripjaws and they are all rock solid and cleared the cpu coolers no problem.

I recommend them over the others. But better yet, get faster RAM becasue bulldozers memory controller is native at 1866 Mhz so get that speed at least.

Something like these perhaps: http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/28250....html#tab:info
