    I think Kingston is the biggest one here. Kingston, Crucial and Corsair are the common ones.

    Bang for Buck Here. Corsair is overrated IMHO- Not worth the Price

    That's the big problem for them. They charge up to twice as much money as g.skill for their top ram of equal overclocking performance. I'd say they need to make their binning more cost effective, but truth be told they're probably just jacking it up because they have premium brand recognition.

    I Agree with you on that, its all the name honestly. ive seen other modules overclock higher and maintain lower voltages and tighter timings than alot of Corsair Modules. even Value Series Ram from other companies doing this

    I had no problems with several G Skill kits that I've used; they have all been seriously stable stuff. But after getting my Samsung memory, as Asrock said, that's what I've been liking a lot more.
