Are the new Rip Jaw X's the same height or less, compared to the Rip Jaws that have been out??
I have ripjaws in my case and I know that the memory in any of the 4 slots will fit underneath my 212+.
So if the ripjaws fit, I assume the ripjaw X's also, because I did side by side picture looking, and they look identical as far as height goes.
I can get either the rip jaws or the X's but I rather get the X's cause they are newer, and I will be able to getting a matching set in the future, and since the X's are newer they are more likely to be there on the shelf when I go to buy!
yeah I took the two zoomed pictures from newegg, and when I measured it seemed like the RipJaws were bigger because they have the two spots where they go further up, while the RipJaw X's seem to only be as tall as the middle part of the original rip jaws.

I thought about it and 1600 CL 7, is a good nice set of memory. Thats what I have right now in a 2x2gb set of the orig rips.
So to get this in a 8gb, I either spend 65$ and max at 8gb. or I spend 160$ on a 2x4gb and have the ability max at 16gb.
The price difference is worth noting, but the chances of me spending another 160$ to max at 16gb, well it seems more logical to get the second set to match my current set.
This would be more economical and would give me extra doe to get a second 5770SO for CFX.
