I bought a triple channel set of RAM from Newegg, 1333 Mhz, 8-8-8-24. I saw a sale on Newegg for the same except 1600 Mhz, 9-9-9-24, for $10 more. Should I opt for the 1600 or keep what I have?? They said they would waive the restocking fee.

Here's the link for what I have and the link to the 1600:

Sure get the 1600, I noticed the CAS 8 vs CAS 9; might be the same ICs -- CAS goes up as Speed goes up. It's almost 6 of one half a dozen of the other; both sets are Corsairs' Budget+1 and the CMX is the newer line.

However, before doing anything check the Compatibility of the RAM to your MOBO -> http://www.corsair.com/configurator/default.aspx

My board is an Asus x58 Sabertooth. I didn't see the RAM listed on the configurator page... will I still be okay?

All of our 3 or 6 module triple channel kits are compatible with the X58 Sabertooth.

^ Start LISTING THEM!!! Duh in the Configuration, I've been begging for months - and to update the NEW Kits!!! Who's running the Company?! Someone who doesn't want to sell product?!

And ADD the Damn Sabertooth X58!!! - list 'em..
