    Does Cas Latency and Timing mean anything to you? If not, go with the cheaper one. They are the same speed. With the Corsair, you're only buying the name. I should talk, I usually go with Kingston.

    they are the same speed. great reviews. cas latency is lower on the cheaper version. just looks like you would be paying more for the name. go for the cheaper one!

    A higher Cas latency is usually the difference between buffered/unbuffered registered/non registered.
    A cas 2 is the fastest and also least stable.
    If you plan on running Dual Channel go for the Corsair. If you reall care about stability go for some registered buffered RAM.
    What ever RAM you chose make sure your MOBO supports it, every now and then one stick of RAM is supported my a main board and that gets to be really annoying!
