Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Heatsink: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I need a RAM suggestion for this combo. The heatsink ALMOST covers the first memory slot, so I need a suggestion for DDR3 1600 RAM that will fit and not hit the heatsink.

Been looking at:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (not sure if the saw-like top is too tall)
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Other suggestions are greatly appreciated as well.
Also, why does the Corsair memory cost more, but have a higher CAS latency and higher voltage?

Thank you for your input.

Personally i use G skill's 8gb sticks, and they don't stick up enough for me to have a problem and my CPU cooler is huge! I'm reasonably sure you won't have any problems, i know i would go with G skill. Consider the 8gb sticks though if they are in your budget, they make upgrading a breeze! Hope this helps, God bless, and happy gaming!

Thank you for the input. I have 4x2 Gb sticks of 1333 RAM in there now, but I want to go for 2x8Gb 1600 sticks so that I can add more RAM in the future if I decide to.
