Hello, these two RAM:

KHX16C9P1K2/16
KHX1600C10D3B1K2/16G

are compatible for this system?

CPU: Intel 15-2500 3.3 GHz
Operation System: Win 7 64-bit SP : 1
RAM: Kingston DDR3 16G 1600 mhz (4 x 4GB) KHX1600C9D3/4G 1.65v
Power Supply : 800 W
MOBO: GA-Z68AP-D3(rev. 1.0)


And if so, are they very different? The 10 is cheaper so I'd like to go with it if it's a big difference.

Both kits are very similar.

The first is a "Green" kit, the second being a "Blu" kit, which generally means that the second one is higher performance.

However, if you look at the specs the first one is the better performance out of the 2.

1600MHz at 9-9-9 timings as opposed to 10-10-10 timings.

You won't be able to tell a difference in real world use however.

And yes, they are both compatible with your system

That's great to hear, I shall go with the 10's. Yea I suppose the subtle timings difference is what offsets their pricing like that. Thank you

I was under the impression the first one you linked was the cheaper one. Which also happens to be the CL9 kit.

No it is definitely the 10's. Why, is that odd you think?

Because in your opening post the first one you wrote down is the green CL9 kit.

And in the last sentence of your opening post you said that the first one you put down is cheaper....

That makes more sense :) 

But in answer to your original question, you will not be able to notice a difference in standard use :)

Haha yes, it does

Great, thanks! :)
