G.Skill Ripjaws - Help me compare

This model of G.Skill Ripjaws (below) is unavailable, so I need a similar alternative.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM
http://gskill.com/products.php?index=243


Are these just as good? And will they be compatible (reach full speeds) with my AMD GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H Mobo (after I tweak in BIOS)? I probably won't OC my RAM. The last one has only 4GB capacity, whereas the others are all 8GB. Will I really notice a 1-2 CAS latency difference in real-world applications (gaming)?

    No. Timing/RAM speed doesn't affect 99% of the computer users.

    As far as RAM goes, GSkill Ripjaws are a very good and popular choice. If you can, pick any of the 8GB kits, if not, get the 4GB kit. They are all more or less the same.
  2. So can I assume that most if not all of the Ripjaw Series can attain full speeds on AMD chipsets with BIOS tweaking?
  3. Which one of these would you prefer?

    http://gskill.com/products.php?index=221 - CAS 8, 1.6V
    http://gskill.com/products.php?index=222 - CAS 9, 1.5V

    If it's all the same, then I'll go with the cheaper option.
  4. ^ The one with 8 CAS Latency is $12 more than the 9 CAS. Is it worth it? Or should I just save?
