RAM timing (9-9-9-24 vs 9-9-9-24-2N)

I'm wondering which RAM sticks' i should buy, the one with 9-9-9-24 or 9-9-9-24-2N from Newegg?

After reading a few threads, I still don't understand the different from 2N and no 2N.Sso which one should i buy, and what does the 2N do?
here's the comparison on Newegg:

Thanks for the help.

  1. There is none. If you actually go to the gskils website and look at both products, they are both listed as 2N.

    Same everything, just a different looking heatspreader for the "X" version.
  2. The 2N or 2T as it's also called is just the command rate. It's listed for one set of RAM and not listed on the other.

    The Ripjaws is an older model than the Ripjaws X. Most likely since all the other specs are the same they put new heat spreaders on it and gave it a new name but it's the same RAM modules. The Ripjaws X may have newer XMP profiles as well.
  3. so how come the other, non 'X' has no command rate? (2N thing)

    It does. It's just not listed on newegg. As the other poster stated it is listed on the GSkill website.
