    Hmm...

    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
    0 Brand Crucial Geil
    1 Latency 8-8-8-24 9-9-9-28
    2 Voltage 1.65V 1.6V
    3 Price for 4x2GB $155.92 $99.99


    The Crucial's are faster and have a heatspreader. The heatspreader is pretty important IMO, but I don't know if the benefits are worth the +$56.

    Both will perform admirably in dual-channel mode with four dimms populated.

    look at latency which lower is better, the speed, does it support OC, quality of heatspreader affect the price and performance too and dual will work on that
