Need a good 2 x 4GB Memory kit

I wanted to get the Corsair Dominator 2 x 4GB kit but it's sold out everywhere. One place has it direct from manufactorer but it takes 3 to 4 weeks. I need it to arrive with the rest of the components for my rig. That being said, what other good 2 x 4GB kits are out there that have specs equal to the corsair dominator kit?

Specs:

Form Factor 240-pin DIMM
Memory Speed 1600 MHz

PC12800

  1. Be nice if you provided more of the specs. ie CLx and voltage ,saves having to look up.

    I'm planning on replacing my 4 x 2 Gig Ripjaws (DDR3 1600 CL 7 @ 1.60 V) - They Work great. Will probably go with the RipJaw 2 x 4 gig modules with the same specs for 12 Gigs (may go with 2 sets for 16 gigs- BUT they are also out-of-stock
  2. you can get decent one's by G.skill for around 50-80 dollars...


    here's a list, go check them out.... and then ask questions about the one's you are intrested in.

    Sorry, here are the specs for the Corsair Dominator 2 x 4GB Kit. Haven't found anything like it. Would really like help. I tried the other links posted, but they only offered 8GB kits in 2 x 2 x 2 x 2. I might give in and go that route, but isn't that slower than two sticks of 4GB?

    This was in stock two days ago, but is listed as out of stock now - $129. Same specs but at a LOWER voltage, 1.5 V

    Myself, I'm think of Going with this, Its a CL-7 @ 1.60 Volts ($189) - hopefully it will pair up with my 2 x 2 Ripjaws @ CL 7 / 1.60 volts.. NOTE there is not a big diff between CL7 and CL 7 (Maybe 2 - 5% and then that depends on the app). BUT also at 60 bucks more than the CL 9.
