What memory? debating, choices...
 
CML16GX3M4A1600C9B 16GB (4 x 4GB) 9-9-924- 240pin DIMM Vengeance LP Blue

CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 16GB (4 x 4GB) 9-9-924- 240pin DIMM Black


Black version is actually better than blue? hmmm when I do a check it says black is better for density on the "Featured Memory". why didn't the blue version come up? it does cost more too. is black more compatible for me or something?

I have AMD 1100T black edition on Asus Crosshair V. I am going for more density btw.

SIDE THOUGHTS*** I been considering 2133 now too but dunno how 16gb of 2133 will work or whats highest I can put it too in OC this is why I choose 1600 compatibility. Id like to know if 2133 is nice an should I grab for long run overclocking. maybe get it to 1800+ at least with the 2133 version or is it not compatible with the Crosshair V? I do plan to do 8 cores later so i want to eventually overclock it all.

The black ones are the original Vengeance, whereas the blue are the newer low profile ones. Same specs = same performance.
