you left out corsair vengeance (not low profile), there probably isn't a difference but I think they look a lot better

Depends on some many other factors...so unless you list a CPU + MOBO none of this means zip. Also, what DRAM Frequency and Density (GB/stick) or Size (GB)?

Most folks, the Corsair Vengeance is a solid choice the downside is running them > Rated i.e. >DDR3-1600 but @ Rated they're rock solid:
Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 Model CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you plan to OC both the CPU and RAM >Rated: Corsair Dominator (including GT), G.SKILL Trident X Series, or Mushkin Enhanced Redline. The Corsair Dominator series are all hand picked (expensive) IC's and easily OC.

I have a budget - 100$

Low profile kits are preferred as tpc 812 is a large heatsink...

Currently considering G.Skill ares 1600mhz (4x4) blue

Blue matches my color scheme...

Your GA-Z77X-UD5H is mostly 'Black', if you want 'Blue' then CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9B or low voltage F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXM.

How does low voltage ram affect performance?

I actually prefer the 1.35v because it's easier on the CPU, the performance is the same for comparable Frequency & CAS. I'm running two kits of CMZ16GX3M4X1600C9G and in my testing their actually better than the 1.50v Vengeance.

Keep in mind a low voltage (1.35v) kits can run @ 1.50v or 1.35v; DDR3L.

If i buy 1.35v ram, will i get better OC results?

Is 8gb of ram enough for video editing?

DDR3L = Double Data Rate revision 3 Low voltage.
