2x 8GB 1.333Mhz vs 4x4GB 1600Mhz

Should I buy
G.Skill 16GB (4x4GB) Ares Low Profile, DDR3 1600MHz, 9-9-9-2N, 1.5V


G.Skill 16GB (2x8GB) Ares Low Profile, DDR3 1333MHz, 9-9-9-2N, 1.5V

People told me 2x8gb works better than 4x4gb, but they dont have ares low profile for 2x8gb with 1600mhz.

And i need this specific version because it doesn't have such a huge heat sink like on others because my fan on the cpu is so large.

2x8G Ares DDR3-1600 @ 9-9-9-24

That should work, right?

Two sticks are always easier for an IMC to run than four, so I'd go with that kit since it has the capacity and speed you want.
