Alright guys i am currently adding pieces for a new sandy bridge build, however i am having trouble picking out the last piece; the memory. It will be a 2600k build on an Asus p8p67 pro board. I will be doing some ocing. The following are all g.skill branded but have different latencys

The ram i am considering purchasing are the following:

As far as aesthetics; the x series is the clear winner but i am unsure as to what would be best for me; mostly to be used to gaming, photo/video editing; nothing prof.

Thanks in advance!

Alright thanks, will do that; but i am just curious. Is there any difference between the ripjaw and the ripjaw-x? From what i read, it was "created" specifically for sandy bridge cpus.

For example two of the ones i linked have the same latency, same price i believe as well. Are they both the exact same thing?

I personally think it is a marketing gimmick, I have used ram designed for a AMD system with Intel and vice versa and no problems.

I've heard on various forums that Sandy Bridge CPU's don't handle DIMM voltages above 1.6-1.65v well. So I'm assuming that's why the 1.5v Ripjaw-X RAM is advertised as being designed for Sandy Bridge.
