    Yes go with the G.Skill model,it has the lowest timings/voltage between them.
  2. ^+1 Those G.Skills are best, make sure that height clearance is not an issue though if you have a big CPU HSF.
  3. Thanks for the quick responses guys :D If I were to choose a second one which one would be suitable? The G.Skill one might not be available where I am for a while...
  4. Go for the Mushkin redline model then,it has the same specs as the Ridgeback and its cheaper too
  5. So your saying 6-8-6-24 is better than 7-8-7-20 timings at the same frequency?
  6. The lower the timings the faster. Timings are also known as latencies, and the shorter the latency, the less time it takes for the RAM to communicate with the CPU and other components.
  7. Exactly^
    Lower timings and higher speeds are the main factors of a good RAM.
  8. There is no significant difference with DDR3 memory running at tighter timings (CAS 6 or CAS 7).. I personnely prefer and recommend uniform timing map with a good operating frequency such as 1600MHz with 7-7-7-20 timings.. Crucial and Kingston are the most trustworthy brands when it comes to memory..
