Yellow RAM mess
 
With the upcoming Haswell release i plan on getting a 4770k and with that some new RAM as well. I do plan on building a waterloop later this year, which you can read about here. My initial idea was to build a blue, white and gray themed build, unfortunately there are no mainboards in blue which would do the CPU and a waterloop justice, so i changed the colorscheme to white, yellow and black.
Of course i run in a new problem. There is no god damn yellow RAM of any noticeable manufacturer.

My requirements are 4x4GB, just to fill those slots up, 2133MHz, 1.5V (i read some mixed opinions about 1.65V) and CL10 or lower.
I only found one kit meeting those requirements, the GeIL EVO CORSA Series 16GB kit.
But some things are messed up with that kit as well, the manufacturer's site says it runs at 1.65V, while vendors like caseking or mindfactory say it runs at 1.5V.
Did anyone ever use that kit? Opinions?
If it's crap i will just get black Vengeance RAM.

What about the Avexir RAM?

but i had a look at that RAM as well of course.
Does CL11 make a whole lot of a difference?

I understand your concern, but it's literally the only yellow RAM that I could find. Other ones would be Mushkin Radioactive or Vengeance Green but neither of them are actually yellow.

You can always paint the heatspreaders?

Mushkin Radioactive is Yellow?
I'd recommend that over pretty much anything tbh. Even in blue themed builds, the colour actually fits in really well.

As advertised:

Actual colour is a bit more 'pale':

They do appear more of a matte yellow iirc - a mate of mine has them in a rid I built for him.
But they do look really good, and regardless of the slight shade differences, you can't really argue that it isn't yellow ;)

I agree but if he goes with a board like an Mpower, the accents on there will make the RAM look really awkward imo.

Hmm, I'm not so sure.

My friend has the P8Z77-v Deluxe, with Raystorm waterblock - all blue LED fans, and LEDs in the Raystrom, and the yellow RAM actually doesn't look out of place at all.

I think it would actually look nice in the mPower - the only problem is it's hard to find these days.

They are pale, but it is a gloss colour. Ive still got some
