Default Question about memory kit for Ivy Bridge i7-3770K

I am slowly buying parts for a new build.

Current item: Memory.
Would like to get 16GB, fast and stable (the more the better), preferably under $150 (the less the better).

I understand that kits rated for 1.5v are preferable over those rated for 1.65v.

I was thinking of the following options:

1) 1.5v DDR3 1866 CAS9 - http://tinyurl.com/cmn3btj (several)
Specifically, GEV316GB1866C9DC looks interesting.

2) 1.5v DDR3 1866 CAS8 - Newegg.ca - G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL8Q-16GBZM
More expensive than the above. Worth it?

3) 1.5v DDR3 2133 CAS11 - http://tinyurl.com/clcmth6 (several)

4) Requires higher voltage (1.6-1.65v) DDR3 2133-2400 CAS9-11 - http://tinyurl.com/d9uhakk (several)

Yes, it is quite a number of kits to choose from, but I would very much appreciate your advice.

Thank you!
