So, as the title says, where I'm living I could get the G.Skill Ripjaws-X (2x4GB) DDR3-2400 for about $10 cheaper than the Corsair Vengeance Pro (2x4GB) DDR3-1600. The thing is I'm not sure if I should get the cheaper and faster one but operates at 1.65v or the other which operates at the recommended 1.5v. Is it safe to choose the former? I'm planning to use it with the i5-4690

there's no store in my city that has it in stock. I live outside of the US (Vietnam actually). I tried to look for the Z series too but, alas, nothing :(

Thanks. Can I OC the 2400 to use it at that speed (or close to) with the i5 4690 which is a non-oc cpu? I tried to google but can only find answer for the k version, which is yes they could be oc'd independently, but that doesn't clarify things much.
