Best G.Skill DDR3 Memory for 1156?

Which G.Skill's DDR3 memory is the best choice regarding stability for Socket 1156? (Asus P7P55D PRO & i5 750)
I prefer stability over perfomance. Really hate annoying random computer crashes!


RipJaw
F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM ( http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=243 )
CAS Latency 7-8-7-24-2N
Speed DDR3-1600 (PC3 12800)
Test Voltage 1.6 Volts

ECO
F3-12800CL7D-4GBECO ( http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=247 )
CAS Latency 7-8-7-24-2N
Speed DDR3-1600 (PC3 12800)
Test Voltage 1.35 Volts

Same Latency/CL.
Same Clock.
ECO has lower voltage.
RipJaw has better heat-spreaders. (I guess)

If I got it correctly, Ripjaw is better for OverClocking and ECO is better to use at Stock, right?

I won't do any extreme OverClock. Maximum maximum will be 1600Mhz, just because I pretend to OverClock a little bit the i5 750.
Summary, most of time It will be running at stock speeds.

Most of the topics, I see people suggesting RipJaws instead of the ECO. Why? Just because the better possibility to overclock it?


Edit:
Ps. Of course that I accept suggestions of others memories other than these two that I mentioned. :pt1cable:

  1. Hi.

    Both Ripjaws and ECO series are 1600MHz so, if u want OC the RAM u need go for 1800 or 2000 but with that u won't see a big performance difference.

    Hello,

    But, a 1600Mhz memory will run with only at 1333Mhz in a i5 750 system, right? (At stock speed, 2.66Ghz)
  3. Yeah at stock will run at 1333MHz

    I have the ECO ones on my P7P55D and i5-750 and they're awesome. Low voltage not only means less heat, but also more room for overclocking.
  5. They are both good i just happen to own the F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM kit either way you can't go wrong.
    Btw this website evaluated some ram and this kit can run at CAS6.
    Getting back to the theme of today’s article, we wanted to find the absolute best memory available for under $150, and we have a clear winner. Reaching a data rate more than 100 MHz higher than its closest competitor, G.Skill’s Trident DDR3-2000 (model F3-16000CL9D-4GBTD) took a clear lead that earns it an award. The fact that it was also able to run its rated DDR3-2000 at CAS 7 and our preferred DDR3-1600 at CAS 6 simply reaffirms its award-worthiness.
  6. Other than when I had a bad stick, which can happen with ANY manufacturer, the only memory issues I've ever had were a few times trying to run non-standard DDR2-1066 on various P35 boards. If you are experiencing a lot of random crashes, make sure you have a decent PSU; decent <> high wattage, decent = high quality.

    There are running at 1600Mhz / 1.35v?

    I use DDR1 in my current build. Never crashes. =) (Yes, it's a very old computer haha)
    I hope that will be the same with DDR3.
    Like I said, don't care much about perfomance/high speeds and this stuff, just stability.

    About the PSU, I pretend to buy Corsair 550VX or 650TX. I believe it's high quality! :)
  8. Yes, Corsair is good.
  9. The crashes that I'm afraid of is the famous "blue screen" (BSOD). It is related to the memory, right?
  10. Usually the BSoD means RAM or Drivers.
