    Unless you have specific needs, can't go wrong with anything that runs at the industry standard 1.5v for DDR3. There is nothing magical about RAM (unless it is the Samsung "Magic" RAM :p ). Just buy the cheapest that is fast enough (in your case 1600MHz) and is 1.5v, and is the capacity you want.

    I buy Samsung RAM so I don't have to wonder if any computer problems are due to the RAM.

    also, are you adding or replacing? if adding is your current mem 1.5 or 1.65, you may run into problems if it's 1.65 tho most likely not. you will want to set it to the lower voltage.

    I move 2 sets of 1.65v dimms from a pair of amd boards to a pair of z77 boards and just lowered the voltage to 1.5 without issues.
