I'm buying a new ram with 2133 Mhz frequency.

I've found these two pieces, but not sure which one should I go with, there is double price difference between them for some reason:

CAS Latency CL11 vs. CL9

Personal opinion Gskillz, Kingston makes good memory but is real picky on what you put it on. Plus the price difference. Plus the lifetime warranty with Gskillz not sure what Kingston is.

Why CL11 latency ram cost twice more than CL9 one?

Again, what CPU and what Use???

note: The ONLY (2) CPU's I'd run it on are 1. SB-E/LGA 2011 <or> 2. AMD FX series.

As an owner of G.Skill RipJaw Z 2133mhz CL9 ram (on a R4E & SB-E 3930K platform)
The ram is very nice, though i have noticed even using the XMP settings it does get a little picky on settings at 2133 speeds. Its nice seeing it run at 2133 speed but was hardly an improvement in performance over 1600 speed

Hey Veirtimid,

How does that chip run for your 3D modeling? Are you using Autodesk Maya (what year?)

I haven't install it yet. And it's 3D MAX 2011

I'm using 16GB of g.skills at cas:7-8-7 1600mhz. Everything runs fine in ultra (BF3).
Also your CPU and other hardware have to be able to run at certain speeds in order to take full advantage of the 2000+mhz.

(I think, it was explained to me a while ago but memory just isnt working well ;)  )

What is a good OC program for G.Skill Ripjaws Z? I OC my i7-3930K to 4.6 and 7970 to 1125/1575, all left to do is RAM overclocking.
