Hi guys, I just need a little help in deciding which is the better ram out of the ones ive listed below.

The Motherboard Im going to be using is the Asus p8H77 M Pro

The CPU im going to be using is the i5 3570

The RAM I have to choose from are:

G.Skill Ripjaws X 8G Kit(4Gx2) DDR3 1600 F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL $52

G.Skill Ares 8GB Kit (4Gx2) DDR3 1600 F3-1600C9D-8GAO $52

G.Skill Sniper 8G Kit(4Gx2) DDR3 1600 F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR $54

Kingston HyperX 8G Kit(4Gx2) DDR3 1600 CL9 $55

I know absolutely nothing about ram in regards to timing and volts, so need some help
I know the ones Ive picked out are all pretty much all the same with the timing and volts. So I guess Im trying to find out peoples experiences with the above models…

There doesn’t seem to be any reviews on the Ares. Is this because they are newer than the Ripjaw X ?

I did find one review for the Ares and it said its no good and that Ripjaws X is better ?

Also, out of curiosity I noticed some Ram is 1.5 volts and others are 1.65, which one is a better option ?

From all the ram ive listed above, the Ares is the only one that lists my motherboard in its specifications – Chipset H77. The others don’t mention H77, doesn’t that mean I can not use them ?

Any help is appreciated,

when choosig ram and price is almost same then go for
less voltage
more clock
less latency
with heatsink (but prefer low profile for compatibility with more cpu coolers)

so go for either sniper or aries or ripjawsx (anyone which suits your budget and style)
