Pi series seem a bit better, but those ripjaws have nearly flawless ratings... 96% 5 eggs. Price similar; ripjaws $10 cheaper.

Go with the PI unless you think you'll have RAM clearance issues.

Either are a great choice. I agree with Lmeow, go with the PI but make sure it will clear first.

You know the i7 950 is only $259 at Fry's?

already bought my i7 930 at microcenter $199.
If there are clearance issues in the future would there be any problem with just using a dremel and shaving a bit off the top?

Honestly if you are running aftermarket cooling just get the RipJaws. It is great memory. I have used it in over 10 builds with no problems.

I don't have one yet, but who knows what will happen in the future :p  Are there fans that are compatible with the PI series? I don't want to get the 'inferior' ram just because of physical issue.

Yeah I actually have heatsinks similar to the PI series on my older Corsair DDR2. It just fits with my ( huge ) ZeroTherm Nirvana NV120. Just be sure. It will be a pain to have to return something. When you pick the cooler you want start a new thread asking if anyone has that combo.
