I am building a custom PC to run Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. I using a Asus maximus gene V motherboard and Intel i7-3770k. The person that put together my components list suggested using G.Skill Sniper gaming series 16GB (2x8). I am trying to find some good deals to get my price down and was wondering if the Ripjaws X series or another series be ok. Does it really matter? I do NOT game at all.

It really doesn't matter... (unless you're overclocking the *** out of the ram)

There's a trade-off between high frequency RAM which does aide in reducing rendering time, and the 'cost' is both errors and instability. Next, for higher density non-ECC RAM which increases the 'error rate' adding higher frequency 8GB/stick kits only compounds the 'error rate.' I assume this is for home use and not Pro use, for Pro use Xeon + ECC only.

A cheap and decent 2x8GB kit is the Corsair CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9, and while I like the G.SKILL's in up to 4GB/stick densities I don't like any of their 8GB/stick kit offerings, they need to up date their IC's.

I say stay with 1600mhz cas 9 or 10 memory. 16GB should be enough, although with 32GB you could use a larger ram disk which speeds up editing. I have seen 13 GB being used while encoding in Premiere CS6.

Since you are not overclocking, DDR3-1600 or DDR3-1866 with low timings will produce optimal performance to run Adobe Premiere Pro CS6.

Here are two great options that you can not find elsewhere:

Otherwise, if you are just looking for good memory, not the absolute best, then this is it:

I found a sale for Ripjaws X 16GB CL 10 for $49.99 . I great deal, but should I get CL 9. What kind of difference am I looking at?

Not much, some CPU frequency overclocking can easily make up for it.

Thank you
