  1. Best answer
    I'd go the GSkill 2400 - in comparison they would equate to the 1600/7 as equal at 1600, but the 2400 adds tremendous bandwidth for the DRAM
  2. I recommend the Corsair vengance, but the G Skill will also work. Linus tried DDR3-2400 CAS 10 against DDR3-1866 CAS 9 and the DDR3-1866 won. So I guess I would go with the Corsair Vengance.

    You do realize 100% of 2400 MHz cl10 ram would run at 1866 CL9... and a vast majority will run a CL8. Additionally 1866 winning certain tasks isn't surprising, but in the right task the 2400 will nearly always win, and in some tasks by a pretty wide margin, especially if a Haswell chip is involved.

  10. That's a 1333 to 2400, thanks though ;)
