G.Skill or Corsair RAM?

I'm looking at these two items. Which one is a better purchase? They seem to be very similar to me. Thanks.

  1. Looks like the latency is a bit lower on the GSKill Trident. That'd make it a bit faster.
  2. Yes, the G.Skill kit has tighter timings and is the faster of the two.
    Both are really expensive if you are not using your CPU's IGP though.
    You would probably be better off with a 1866/2133MHz kit that costs half as much.....
  3. This Kit costs $50 less, is lower power and will give you virtually identical performance to the 2400MHz kit with better compatibility.
  4. The GSkill 2400s are great sticks, I've got the 32GB set on my IB 3570K (4.7) and they are great, I went up to their 2666 for my Haswell....great for multi-tasking, video, imaging, VMs, CAD, anything that really uses DRAM, if looking simply for gaming, go 1866 or so

    I'll be gaming more often than not, but I also do video editing on the side. Not super intensive, but I figured these might help out with that.

    Yep, you'll be pleased with them, 2400 is a good freq for that, you'll notice other things running smoother and faster also.. ;)
