RAM Choice

I can choose between
Amazon.com: 16GB G.Skill DDR3 PC3-17000 RipjawsZ Series for Intel X79 (9-11-10-28) Quad Channel kit 4x4GB: Electronics

and

http://www.amazon.com/G-SKILL-Ripjaw...1990419&sr=1-7


I'd choose the first option because its better and cheaper, but it says its designed for X79. I'd normally think that it wouldn't matter, but i wanted to confirm.

well x79 supports quad channel memory, as your not intending to use quad channel, just 4 dimms in dual channel id opt for the cheaper ones.
