I'm to the point where I need to decide what memory to put in my machine. It's an i5-3570k on an Asus P8Z77-V LK (If that matters). I have a few brands in mind but I want to know which one will be the most reliable, good value, and fit under an aftermarket fan like the 212+ if I need one in the future. The speed I found most ideal is 1600 MHz so if anyone knows the most reliable, high-performance brand of memory, that would be great. :D 

I was going to get the Vengeance but it might not fit under a cooler. They all look cool though!

Corsair makes a low profile version of the Vengance. Same RAM just a normal sized heatspreader. 1.5v DDR3 does not even need those heatspreaders it's just for looks.

Corsair Vengance = GSkill Ripjaws. Go with the one that looks better or is cheaper. They are both very good and both have lifetime warranties. Both will fit under an aftermarket CPU heatsink.
