That Mushkin RAM is excellent, 2 x 8GB gives you more room for expansion, 4 x 4GB takes up all your RAM slots so you have to take that into consideration.

If you're using a D14 you definitely need low profile RAM. That Mushkin should work, if not go for something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The one I linked to in the previous post is from a manufacturer that has some of the lowest fail rates in the industry.

It's worth it if you plan to OC your CPU beyond 4.5GHz. If not a Hyper 212 Evo will give you the same result.

Crucial, Kingston and G.Skill have the lowest fail rates among RAM manufacturers - as long as you get from one of those and it matches your motherboard's QVL you should be fine.
