Case- CM 690
MB- ASUS P7P55D EVO LGA1156
Cooler- Dark Knight cooler (and 1156 bracket when it comes in)
Video- ASUS/XFX/Saphire 5850 (probably whichever I can get my hands on first)
PSU- Corsair 750TX
Hard Drive- WD Black or Samsung F3 spinpoint (lots here love the Samsung, but makes me nervous...)
Higher frequencies are good, but lower latencies are better. I would get this cheap, fast set (it will perform at least as well as the 1600/CL8 set for cheaper).

If you don't mind spending extra for a minimal performance boost then go with the last set you listed.
I think I'm leaning towards the $95 set, decent timings with 1600 freq... I'm probably going to load it with 8GB as I'm fairly certain the cooler will over hang the slots and make it more difficult to upgrade later.
Can anybody confirm that this ram (with decent size risers) will clear the Dark Knight on an Asus p7p55D 1156 - also looking at the Zalman CNPS10X QUIET as the brackets are still out for the Dark Knight
