    I like corsiar's memory cuz they are cool, but in this case, i would go with the kingston cuz the price is a lot lower. The specs seem to be the same, so you could google some info on their overclockability and see which one you like (assuming you want to do a lil overclocking). But again, i would go with the cheaper one, which is the kingston ones.

    I've had great experiences with Kingston, its a great brand and the price isn't bad either. Out of those 2 that you picked I would personally go with the kingston because corsair is usually overpriced but you really can't go wrong.

    Or get these :

    Cheaper and lower latency

    I love these mushkin's too :

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226030

    Or if you want to save even more money check these out :

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231247

    Any of these will do you just fine

    Hope this helps :D

    I have the G.Skill PI 1600-8-8-8-21, they're ok, but they don't go much past their specs. Still, pretty fast memory!

    Thanks for the input guys. But as I said..I just have the Domie and Kingston at my local vendors. I can get OCZ from India but would turnout to be more expensive..but do u think that CAS7 is worth it?. I just used newegg so theres detailed specs. Too bad newegg wont ship internationally.

    BTW, which one overclocks most and easily?
