Hi so i am trying to choose good memory for my rig that is so far:

Intel Core i7-860

Was thinking abuot patriot sector 5 viper ii 1600 cl7 or similar g.skill eco but id like to know your opinion and suggestions. What are the pros and cons of having low voltage memory like eco 1.35v?

Just get DDR3 1600 and find a happy medium between the lowest voltage you can find and timings.

Thats a question I cannot answer... :)

You are not going to notice a difference in anything between those two sticks really.

Well I do like OCZ a lot if that helps your decision?

I use OCZ, Crucial and G.skill for most of my builds and love them all, never any issues and they work just as advertised.
