2 Crucial Ballistix Sport 1600 ddr3 4gb or 1 2x4gb gskill ripjaws x 1600 ddr3

Which one? Two of the Crucials or the kit. They're both about the same price. (within $2 of each other).

I was leaning towards the G.Skill but it's hard to find reviews for this particular kit. The Crucials however have a good reputation. I have been able to find a few reviews that get them up to 2133mhz.

The reviews I have seen for the Gskills show less than that, though the reviewers were particularly concerned with the timings.

There is a review on xbitlabs for a 4x4 ddr3-1600 kit. but it's these G.Skill RipjawsX F3-1600C9Q-32GXM

I am looking at these F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

Would the red ones be binned lower or have less good chips? The Crucial memory being made by Crucial which is owned by Micron might have a better chance at better chips as they have a direct link to the supplier eh?

Which one would you go for?
