People recommended me Corsair Dominator 6Gb, 1600Mhz, CL7 because it is supposed to be the ultimate I7 ram, but there seem to be diffrent versions.

TR3X6G1600C7D and CMP6GX3M3A1600C7, so whats the difference and which one is better???

$10 and the timings. The TR3X6G1600C7D timings are 7-7-7-20 and the CMP6GX3M3A1600C7 timings are 7-8-7-20. The heatsinks are a bit shorter on the CMP6GX3M3A1600C7 so fitting a larger cooler may be easier/or possible.

Depends on what you're doing with it. Looser timings give more room for overclocking if I remember correctly

There are no real world performance gains going with lower latency ram, I think it was Angry_Games who proved this a few years ago when all the CL2 DDR ram was flying around the web. I would post a link to the thread but all the graphs are gone because they were hosted on his site and that has been down for some time now.

True there is really no preformane diffrence between the 2, get the cheaper set. Corsair has great memory and it really preforms well with the i7's and X58.

I'm sold on G.Skill, very solid and stable. The 6gigs I run on my P6X58D Premium board are F3-128000CL9T-6GBNQ, 1600. You can really crankum up.
