Mostly ..... the fancy heat sinks they stick on top that don't really do anything but "look cool" :) 

But did ya notice that one was a 4 Gb set and another an 8 GB set ? One is CAS 8 and one is CAS 9 .... CAS is the time that the memory waits in between accepting instructions....smaller is better

If I were you, I'd simply buy another set of what you already own to bump you up from 4 to 8 GB

I am dying to know whether the Corsair Vengeance heat spreaders are removable or not. If so Im purchasing a set and removing em. They're just in the way.
