1.65v G.Skill ram 2400Mhz (cheaper) vs 1.5v Corsair 1600Mhz in i5-4690
So, as the title says, where I'm living I could get the G.Skill Ripjaws-X (2x4GB) DDR3-2400 for about $10 cheaper than the Corsair Vengeance Pro (2x4GB) DDR3-1600. The thing is I'm not sure if I should get the cheaper and faster one but operates at 1.65v or the other which operates at the recommended 1.5v. Is it safe to choose the former? I'm planning to use it with the i5-4690

Depends on what mobo you're using it on eg most amd only take 1866.
Asrock z97 extreme4, which if I read it correctly it supports 2400 ram with OC
there's no store in my city that has it in stock. I live outside of the US (Vietnam actually). I tried to look for the Z series too but, alas, nothing
2400 cl11 will run about as good as cl9 1600
Thanks. Can I OC the 2400 to use it at that speed (or close to) with the i5 4690 which is a non-oc cpu? I tried to google but can only find answer for the k version, which is yes they could be oc'd independently, but that doesn't clarify things much.
To get it running at 2400 all you do is install it and enable XMP in bios. Done.
