1600 1.5V Reliable and Budget Memory?

Hello,

So I'm going to build with an i5-2500k (or the IB equivalent) and the Extreme3 Gen3 mobo (or the IB-released equivalent). I'm looking for DDR3 1600 RAM, and 1.5V or less, since that's all i5 supports. I've heard Kingston and Crucial are the most reliable, but G.Skill offers best deals. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

EDIT: I need 8 gigs... sorry about that!

  1. How many gigs?
  2. Oh yikes... forgot to post that. 8 gigs :/

    Thanks! It's pretty speedy... but if there's any 1600 with $10 off, it would be even better! I don't really need 1866, and I'm buying late April

    Well, the best would be to post here again few days before you will buy, as the prices and deals are changing every few days : )

  5. As to G-Skill, I've used their Ripjaw's DDR3-1600, CL7 in both my I5-750 (4 x 2 gig) and My i5-2500k (4 x 4 gig). Did not have a bit of trouble setting and running them @ specs.

  6. Considering the theme and Quality vs a few bucks, I agree with @Nikorr's suggestion and get the Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 Model 996995.

    Mushkin is a very reliable company.
