Ok I am building a new system and have narrowed my RAM purchase down to two different sets.

Of these two which is better?

Both look pretty similar....the corsair sticks are running a 25% off deal right now with the promo code so i was going to go with them because $75 is a steal. What do you guys think?

Vengeance and Ripjaws X are both great choices. Because of that discount I would go with the Vengeance.

I prefer Corsair ram myself.

Both of those are tall though, I would check cooler clearance.

I dont really know how to check the cooler clearance. I purchased the Corsair ones. I know they are tall so I hope I dont run into any problems with them. I hear the first ram slot is close to the cpu on p67 boards as well.

That's all right -- with two sticks of RAM you won't be using the closest slot anyway.

For dual-channel with two sticks on P67 boards:
Slot 1 (closest to CPU): Empty
Slot 2: RAM
Slot 3: Empty
Slot 4: RAM

Well I will be using all 4 slots eventually.
