$69.99 16GB (2 x 8G) G.SKILL DDR3-1600 (PC3 12800) F3-1600C10D-16GSQ Cas Latency: 10

Feedback from 2011 and 2012 Mac owners is all positive. This used to sell for $49.99

$144.99 16GB (2 x 8G) Kingston HyperX DDR3-1600 (PC3 12800) KHX16S9P1K2/16 Cas Latency 9

Feedback from 2011 and 2012 Mac owners is all positive. Sole complaint was the price which is 3x the price of the G.SKILL. just for Cas Latency 9.

I haven't actually seen any speed tests comparing usage using RAM with faster latency. In theory things should run faster, but I suspect the difference is negligible, and won't be noticed in actual usage. (Again, so long as you aren't mixing RAM with different CL values)

How long did it take you to receive your RAM from Crucial, for your late 2012 27" iMac? I ordered last Saturday, via free shipping, and haven't received it yet. Also, were you able to track your shipping via Mail Innovations? I am unable to track using the info Crucial gave me.

I ordered from Crucial on Dec 27th and received the RAM on Jan 4th.

That depends on the type/model of the RAM. In my opinion, you should be more concerned with compatibility, reliability, and warranty.

there are no differences between mac and pc rams, this is broscience!

CAS latency, or CL timing

Corsair vengence does, but Corsair makes other models:
This one is 11-11-11-30

wait.. isn't better a lower cas timing?

I saw that the only cl9 is the hyperx kingston.. but does it worth 40$ more than the others cl10?
