Hey guys!
I'm building my first pc, and wanted to know your opinions on my choice of ram.
I've decided to get 16gb of ram, however I don't know which one to go for.
So far I'm in between either the:

16G Kit 1600(8Gx2) G.Skill RipJaws-X for $95

16G Kit 1600(8Gx2) G.Skill Ares for $95

I've also heard that the Ares has a problem in which the motherboard detects it as 1333 instead of 1600, which I've also heard can be easily fixed by going into the systems BIOS.
If that's true, I'd appreciate it if someone could explain the steps I'd have to take in order to do so.

Thanks guys!

The only difference is in the height of the ram.

What motherboard and CPU do you have? The necessary steps to configure settings depend on the type of hardware used.

Thank you

Enable XMP and it should be ready to go. Or you can manually input DRAM frequency, timings, voltage, and it will be the same.

Here is a very good memory kit for that CPU and motherboard:

G.Skill F3-14900CL8D-8GBXM

Don't forget you need to manually input settings or enable DOCP/EOCP for optimal memory performance.

Thank you
