Default Anyone familiar with ARES?

How are the g.skill ARES? I am thinking of purchasing the blue ones for my system to match the blue theme I got going on. I notice the timings are just 9-9-9. Are these fine with Sandy Bridge/Z68?

I have never had any issue with any set of G.SKill Ram.
And when I have had bad sticks, their RMA Process is painless and efficenet.

Go for it.
