As a personal preference, I prefer the Corsair. I have 4GB (4x1GB) of the XMS (same as dominator minus the fan) thats 5-5-5-18 1066MHz and I was able to clock it to 4-4-4-12 1333MHz.

Corsair just tends to be a tad better.

+1 Corsair, even though I use G.skill. :) 

Like they all say, both are great. Corsair is just a well known and more respected brand (somewhat).

from the benchmarks ive read id say the corsair is better (especially when OCing)

i use OCZ ram though, i wouldnt recomend my stuff (titanium) as it doesnt overclock well. (i was talkde into buying it over the dominator by a pc store manager. mistake)

It depends, the new G.Skill series, Trident, Black PI, Perfect Storm, and Ripjaw series are great for overclocking, I've gotten great results from all but the Perfect Storm series, since I've never used them, but I hear good things. The reason G.Skill is the best is simple, as long you don't rip off the heatspreaders, G.Skill will bend over backwards to help you in case of failures, something Corsair won't I've found. Of course that only really helps if you REALLY want to overclock, like I do. Examples:

2x2GB DDR2 Black PI
stock: 800 MHz 4-4-4-12
OC'd: 1010 MHz 4-4-4-12

That is MASSIVE

Another example, the Ripjaw series:

Stock: 1333 MHz 7-7-7-21
OC'd: 1630 MHz 7-6-6-20

Not bad huh?

The point is, memory overclocking roundups are useless because RAM's overclockability can vary greatly between seemingly identical kits.

IDK. I had a problem in my old system a while ago that my fiance uses when it was about 5 years old. Had some Corsair XMS DDR 400 in it and it was failing.

Went to the Corsair website, put in a claim (this was lifetime memory) and they sent me 4GB of new stuff free and I sent them back the old sticks. Was suprised that they so easily sent me new DDR sticks since DDR was pretty much gone in stores.

Just depends on a case by case I guess.

yeah ive heard alot about the ripjaw stuff, tbh i didnt even realise it was gskill.

but the buzz is that ripjaw is some of the best budget/enthusiast ram out there.
