Is this as good as it sounds?

Is the g.skill sniper series 1866 RAM as good as the specs show? With a speed of 1866 and a CAS of 9, it seems too good to be true!

Well, it not bad at all. But, as just a head up for $5 more there is 1866MHz and a CAS 8 too. https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f314900cl8d8gbxm

Either one really, because my guess is both would run about the same just as stable.

Wow! I didn't see that one. Thanks :D I think I might have to go with the sniper series only because of clearance issues with the hyper 212 evo.

I just checked and I don't think it fits under a 212. However I just found this. Still has a CAS of 9, but a much higher speed! What do you think?

Go for it. Sniper is solid ram. Not the best, but not low end either. It's made to be a high performance ram on a budget with a low profile. So exactly what you need.

What would you say is the best?

That really depends on budget and purpose... I can't give a straight answer without that factored in

We are so far into ddr3 and now ddr4 that we ca make low latency with high speeds.
