Firstly, why do you need 16 GB of ram? There is very little difference in performance for daily usage and gaming between 8 GB (I suppose 8 GB is supplied out of the box) and 16 GB. Secondly, tighter timings CL 9 vs CL 11 is not going to give you a world of difference. I read at most 2% improvement. Thirdly, I suspect the ram supplied out of the box by Alienware is low powered ram rated at 1.35v (at least this is what I got).
