Would there be a noticeable difference between these 2 memory of 8GB?

Would there be a noticeable difference between these 2 memory types of 8GB?

I mainly will do gaming. The ones with the heat sink; I will not be able to use the fan because of my cpu cooler, and I will have to take out my cpu cooler to install them.

First one has CAS latency of 9-9-9-24

Second one has CAS latency of 7-7-7-20

More about would noticeable difference memory
  1. The dominator heat sinks don't fit under a lot of heat sinks

    Are you sure you don't want DDR3-1600 ?

    Ya can read about CAS latency here .... I always buy the lowest CAS # the pc owner can afford.

    I would get two of these kits:

    They'll run DDR3-1333 CAS 6 and generally work better than anything of similar price.

    I don't put much stock into ratings, I'd rather actually TEST the stuff to find its capabilities. Here's such a test:

    I have a set of these I was thinking of returning. See below. They fit under my heatsink - Scythe Zipang. I was going to buy another set, but I read that it isnt good to buy sets of memory that wasnt tested together. Is that true, or should I just buy another set?
    I have a Asus Crosshair iii Formula and AMD 965 BE 125w.

    I'm sure that nobody in their right mind would want DDR3-1600 if they knew that the best DDR3-1600 they could afford used D9KPT chips...and that the same chips...without sinks...on 1333-rated modules...cost less and perform better.

    In other words, it's a step down that cost more. You'd have to be some kind of clown to appreciate that move.
