Hi All,

Just finishing my new build, and would like your opinion on RAM please. Which is better (i eill have 32gb for video editing/transcoding)

Corsair Vengeance Black 16GB 2X8GB DDR3-1600 CL10-10-10-27 1.5V Dual Channel Memory Kit. http://ncix.com/products/?sku=66354&vpn=CMZ16GX3M2A1600...

Or

Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB 2X8GB PC3-12800 DDR3-1600 1.5V CL9 Dual Channel Memory Kit. http://ncix.com/products/?sku=68899&vpn=BLS2KIT8G3D1609...

Is the Crucial Ballistix faster because the latency is lower?

The rest of my build:

i7 3770k
H100 cpu cooler
Asus p877v deluxe
Msi gtx560ti hawk
Xfx black ltd 1000w psu
Vertex 3 120gb boot drive
Seagate 3tb data drive
Bitfenix colossus venom case
Asus dvd/bd burner

Please weigh in. Thanks!

Sorry, forgot to add that the Crucial has 9 9 9 24 timing.

Would anything about the Corsair make it better than the Crucial?

Thanks

Both are reputable companies and have been on the market for a long time. Both meet the specification for your lga1155 hardware. Quality wise they should be identical and offer lifetime warranty.

Thanks. Found Patriot G2 32gb kit with 1600Mhz and 9 9 9 24 timing. It's quad channel, but am told it will just run in dual channel on my asus p8z77 v deluxe mobo.
