Default Any comments on the G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 9-9-9-24 RAM?

Any comments on the quality of this set of RAM. How's the overclocking potential? I've cancelled my order for 4 pairs of Corsair Vengeance just because of the reputation of G.Skill's RAMs. I'm planning to buy two of these G.Skill packages and use them in a 4x4 configuration for a total of 16GB of RAM in either an Intel or AMD setup.

G.Skill RAM is definitely top-notch. I and many people I know use it, it is great stuff.

Have had very nothing but great consistent experiences with G.Skill memory.
Btw, I just purchased 8GB 1600Mhz DDR3 Kingston HyperX for $38 from NCIX so that may be a contender as well but the majority of my builds have used G.Skill and for good reason.

Running two of these kits for 16GB on my P8P67 Deluxe and haven't had any issues. Solid stuff and inexpensive too.

Good Ram, 1600mhz with decent timings at only 1.5v, but I wasn't able to clock my friend's set to 1866 even with looser timings and more voltage
