They are all very good for gaming. Which memory is best depends on the specifications. A higher frequency or lower timing than standard will be best for gaming.

ares is low profile. If you want to use a big heatsink, such as a 212 evo, you will want the ares.

It means the physical size of the stick is small. It will fit underneath the fan on a large heatsink. The ripjaws have taller heat spreaders and may interfere with a big heatsink/fan.

With a cooler like the Evo 212 ( I own with ripjaws) you can raise the fan up a little to go over the heat sink. Wish i realized this before i pulled the heat sink off one of my memory sticks.
