Question about RAM (Which one is better)

Hello guys!

Which ram could be better for my PC?
My PC:
MoBo. Asus z97-PRO Gamer
CPU: i7 4790k
VGA: Asus GTX 970

And RAMs:
Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB (2x8) CL9, 1866MHz
OR Corsair Dominator 16GB (2x8), CL9, 1866MHz

Or which RAM would you reccomend? (You can recommend any other)

I don't want to overclock RAM.

Merry Christmas,
Wendath

  1. Should be no difference
    Crucial Ballistix also do RAM at a good price.
    Actually, changing to 1600 Mhz or 2133Mhz would make almost no difference on your PC - memory access on Haswell is so fast that it is rarely the bottleneck
  2. Get the cheapest CL9, 1600 or faster you can get. Fancy colors and useless coolers and even the make name only cost your money.

    Thank you for your quick respond, I've checked Crucial Ballistix RAMs, and their specifics looks pretty good for this price.

    Thank you for your quick response, too. I agree with that, I don't need colors, and useless fans, I don't want to overclock.

    Of the two, the Kingston is easiest for set up (they operate off PnP so they do it for you, the Corsair are a little stronger with more OC headroom, run off XMP so just need to enable XMP in the BIOS, both are about same performance wise
