Default Need new ram

I just found my Evga X58 3X SLI board and my Corsair XMS3 1600 Dominator ram don't play well together so I'm going to RMA the ram. It seems it won't run at 1600 on that board and at the Corsair forum they can't find a solution. I'm looking for recommendations on what I should get to replace it with. I would like to stay in the same approximate price range but want something that will work with the board and my i7 920. Thank's.

There's an OCZ set at NCIX for 110$ after rebate, it's an Obsidian kit. DDR3-1600 9-9-9 timings. Not the god of overclocking, but cheap and they work at 1600.

I found a set of Mushkin redlines for $209. They are the frostbite and not the ascent that they did the review on but they are probably the same kit but with different heatsinks. I know they work with the Evga board and a 920 and it will do the Superpi with out reboot. Sound's like a deal to me. Any thoughts?

998691 - 6GB (3x2GB) PC3-12800 DDR3 Redline 6-7-6-18 (Triple Kit)

9-9-9, 1600, 1.5v supposedly. 80$?? Got my vote. Good rating so far.

EDIT: Wait, that's 3gb. How much are you looking for?
