Need help choosing RAM Chips

Corsair RAM chips popped up on sale today and it has me second guessing me Ripjaw RAM decision. The specs are:

CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 $60
Timing 10-10-10-27
Cas Latency 10
Voltage 1.5V


G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 $80
Timing 9-9-9
Cas Latency 9
Voltage 1.5V

I will be over clocking my new 3570k but is the minor timing change a big deal and worth the extra $20?

  1. After reading a couple of forum post here and other sites, it seems the difference of CAS 10 vs 9 is unnoticeable even when over clocking. Only thing that really matters is that is 1600.
  2. Yes, the only factor here would be price. Also will they fit under your cooler. Otherwise very similar.
