i`m trying to choose between those 2 ram`s.
it`s for an in building system , based on i3 530 cpu and gigabyte h57 board.
kind of multipurpose usage , light to medium gaming.
can`t find a clear cut recommendation for it.
some say that the eco will run with lower temp, designed especially for the 1156 Intel`s, and due to the low voltage, it`ll have room for ram oc/tightening timings.
others, that the ripjaws should be potentially more performance ram.
the ripjaws come with a slight better "stock" timings (7-7-7-24 vs. eco`s 7-8-7-24)
the eco 1.35 v and ripjaws 1.6 v.
i`m planning to work on the cpu with Scytheā€ˇ ninja 2 passive cooling.
help please.

The ripjaws are G. Skill's high performance RAM, that what it advertises - for performance. That's why I would choose it. You are free to make your own decision, of course.
