I've been purchasing my memory from Crucial or Corsair mostly - But keep in mind that my experiences are all DDR3-based. I've don't have anything that's DDR4 yet.
Note that none of this RAM has been technically bad, it's just never matched the Profile settings on any board that supports the feature. I typically end up running them at lower speeds than rated at tighter timings than rated at the normal voltage.
I would just go for the highest standard, if I were you. For example, if you were on z97, I would recommend DDR3L-1600. If you want to try your hand at overclocking, go one bin higher with lower CAS latency or 1866 and have some wiggle room to play around with it.
Don't spend any more money on RAM unless fiddling with the BIOS is a hobby for you by itself. You can probably get it to run at the rated speed, it was tested at the factory and working at the rated speed, but if you want to overclock your CPU as well it may not, and a CPU overclock has a much higher effect on overall performance.
