Default 4GB sticks of RAM for SNB

Hey guys,

What is the current recommended 4GB sticks for Sandy Bridge, with low profile heatsinks?

Hoping for something along the lines of DDR3-1600 9-9-9-24-1T @ 1.5V.
I have Corsair Vengeance RAM at the moment, however I want to move the setup back to air with a Noctua NH-D14 and these stupid cosmetic heat spreaders are too tall.

Ideally it would be those old G-Skill ECO sticks that ran at CL8 1.35V but those are long gone

Thanks.

Sorry I am looking for 4GB sticks.

Ended up purchasing two kits of G-Skill Sniper DDR3-1600 CL9 1.25V 2x4GB overt at NewEgg. No reviews, but fingers crossed that I can increase the voltage a bit to tighten up the timings.

If it's good, I'm going to end up dumping all of my Corsair Vengeance for this!
