Question Corsair 1866 Mhz CL9 vs Corsair 1600 Mhz CL8

Hi guys.
I wanna build a i5 2500k system with a P67 mobo and I'm looking for the right memory chips.
I oscillate between these two because they are OK and have the same price !!!
Which one do you thing will help me better or run faster?
Thanks,

Bogdan

If you're going for cheap, the 1600MHz kit will work just fine, and you won't notice the difference between the kits unless you're benchmarking competitively.

Likely you'd be able to get to 1866MHz with CL9 and some additional voltage if you really needed it, but it's not really necessary.

Thanks for the quick reply.
I want to know which one to buy considering they have the same price (2 euros between them).
What's more important: the latency or the frequency ? This is my issue.
Thanks.

Go for the 1866MHz if the difference is that small.

As Slave said, bandwidth is the magic with an i5.

You could probably run the 1600 CL8's at the same specs as the 1866 CL9's without changing voltages, and vice versa, chances are these 2 even use the same chips. Get the 1866 though just to be on the safer side, plus more MHz = better to overclock usually.
