Vendetta 2 usually hits very close to the Xig so its about price and style really!
Agreed. I ran OCZ Vendetta 2 on my old LGA775/Quad setup and it was pretty good. However, both Xigmatek and OCZ offering are HDT based so you really can't go wrong with either one of them. From my research they are almost identical aside from the fan. It really comes down to the price and brand preference.
