Hi All,

I am new to computer builds and needed some advice, sorry if the answer is obvious.

I have GA-Z97X-Gaming G1 WIFI-BK, i7 4790k, Corsair H100iGTX, but just deciding on the ram.

First of all is this ram compatible?
'Vengeance® Pro Series — 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 DRAM 2400MHz C11 Memory Kit (CMY16GX3M2A2400C11R)'

Also, I can get the following two for virtually the same price, 2400Mhz is slightly cheaper but didn't want to get a higher speed ram if it may cause some instability.

Vengeance® Pro Series — 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 DRAM 2400MHz C11 Memory Kit (CMY16GX3M2A2400C11R)

Vengeance® Pro Series — 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 DRAM 1866MHz C9 Memory Kit (CMY16GX3M2A1866C9R)

Would really appreciate any advice.

Thank you, what if I want to underclock the ram to 1866mhz or 1600mhz with cl9. Is this possible?
