Prices?

Assuming prices are about the same, I'd get the Gskill.

Whatever you do don't buy any OCZ, they stink in recent years. Also get ram with a 7 latency or less. the smaller the number the better.

There is no big difference in the prices , the biggest difference would be about 25$

Having used OCZ Gold 6GB kit, I agree.

Id actually settle with either one of the Mushkin, Gskill, or the Dominators(Just looks awesome). On a side note, can you find Pis?

How is that something worth noting? It uses the same Elpida chips in most other HP RAMs.. :pt1cable:

I would go with the Mushkins or a CL7 Corsair XMS kit.
I'm not a fan of tall heatspreaders that make aftermarket cpu cooling a nightmare.

BTW , which one of these would hinder the ability to install large CPU coolers ? I think it would be a serious problem ??

The G.SKILL TRIDENT and Corsair Dominators have very tall heat spacers, which can interfere with a large HSF.

I support the Mushkin or the G.SKILL PI Series 6GB DDR3 1600 Cas6 or Cas7 models, as well.

I have a set of G-skill rip jaws and an aftermarket cooler with no problems from the heat risers. The Ripjaws aren't very tall at all

I know, he also said mushkin has a low riser. I was just adding to that, that the ripjaws don't have tall risers ;)
