8 GB DDR3 for 2500k

I'm torn between 2 pairs of 8 GB DDR3 RAM.
G.SKILL F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=239
and http://www.corsair.com/vengeance-low-profile-8gb-dual-channel-ddr3-memory-kit-cml8gx3m2a1600c9.html
What do you think it's best for my 2500k build with a gigabyte z68x-ud4-b3 ?
Do you have other suggestions for memory?

  1. This is what I have, its great. (Not sure were your from so I'll post a couple of links)


  2. those are not available in my country
  3. Any Corsair or G.Skill 1333 or 1600 MHz 2x4GB kit should do. Just make sure its heatsinks don't block the CPU cooler :) The price for such a kit should be $50-60. That's all you need to know to get some good RAM.
  4. PM/It depends IF you plan to 'someday' add more RAM.

    The F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL are fine, but when using 2 Kits for 4x4GB often they'll only run together at DDR3-1333 Frequency.

    Both the Corsair sets listed CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B and CML8GX3M2A1600C9 are fine, I would choose the CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B only because I know they'll run together in a 4x4GB and at Rated Frequency/CAS and there's 'some' room for OC'ing above Rated.

    I do also like the Kingston HyperX T1 KHX1600C9D3T1K2/8GX but at least in the USA are out of production/discontinued. Also the G.SKILL F3-12800CL7D-8GBXH - you need to manually set the DRAM Voltage to 1.60v but they're really fast but expensive.

    However, yeah IF you can get the F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM that's best.

    Though I 'sort of' agree with Thomas's article, here's some additional and 'rated' sets - http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/corsair-vengeance-crucial-ballistix-kingston-hyperX,2907-11.html
  5. I don't plan to add more ram to the setup.Would of liked to oc it a bit but doesn't matter that much. Thank you for your replies :)
