I have used both and both are great. one thing with g.skill i have noticed is i usually can get far better timings @ stock voltage @1T then corsair....though i had one set of corsair extreme that beat any g.skill with lowest timings at stock voltage 1T i ever had.
either one should make you happy.
hey again!!! I heard that the vengeance has a tall heat sink which is a pain in the ass!! Also people say that the vengeance has a rating of 7.5 out of 7.9 while the G.skill has a 7.8 out of 7.9. Is this true??
Corsair sells a low profile Vengeance version. GSkill Ripjaws fits under pretty much any heatsink as is. Just don't get tradition Vengeance with an aftermarket cooler.
As to the WEI, no that's not true. Not that WEI is something you need to pay attention to anyway. It's about useless.
Don't use Ares with Sandy or Ivy Bridge. The VCCSA/VCCIO voltage it needs is too high. It's fine for AMD systems.
