RAM choice ?

Hey I am stuck on what RAM to get for my build:

Corsair Memory Vengeance Jet Black Low Profile 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz CAS 9 XMP Dual Channel Desktop

OR

Corsair Memory XMS3 8GB 2 x 4GB DDR3 1600 MHz CAS 11-11-11-30 Dual Channel Desktop

OR

Corsair Memory Vengeance Black 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz CAS 9 XMP Dual Channel Desktop

the price difference for them is only about £5

My build is:

Intel Core i5-3570K 3.40GHz (Ivybridge) Socket LGA1155
ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 S1155 Intel Z77 DDR3 ATX
Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
XFX Pro 650W Core Edition '80 Plus Bronze' Power Supply
Cooler Master Elite 430 Windowed Case - Black MF CODE [RC-430-KWN1]
LG Electronics 24x DVD-RW SATA Black
Western Digital 1TB Black 3.5" SATA6GB/S 7200rpm 64MB

  1. Low latency is good, and those kits all have the same nominal bandwidth, so I suggest you go with the first one - it's tied with the third for timings, but the low profile means it's less likely to interfere with large cpu coolers in case you decide to get one.
  2. And you might want to consult with QVL for ram. You should be able to download it from ASRock.
