Decided to put my impatience aside and save up for a build with a little more punch.

I'll be using this PC for music production (reason for i7 and 16GB RAM) and gaming. The only component I'm unsure of is my memory. I chose the Trident X Series 2400 16GB (would like to try overclocking at some point) but it seems like every build online has Ripjaws. Thoughts?

Aside from the Trident, I've considered the following:

16GB Memory
Kingston HyperX Fury Black 1866
Corsair Vengeance Pro (2400/1866)
G.Skill Ripjaws X/ Sniper Series (2400/1866)
