    at stock speeds i would go with the ocz due to lower timings but in oc enviroment probably the corsair would be better

    Nope, it's the opposite. I would still go for the Corsair, I have had excellent luck with Corsair products so far (3 PSUs and 4 kits of RAM), and the Corsair memory I have purchased in the past OCs excellently

    the truth = low timings > high timings.

    high frequncy > low timings

    thats why at the same time frequency increases with each new standard (ddr, ddr2, ddr3), more frequency is added to enhance performance

    both identical other than appearance.

    they have the same chips.

    SPD doesnt matter.

    Using the above info to base my views on, I'd go with the OCZ set as they look better and come with tighter stock timings.
