Hey guys I just got some Corsair XMS3 ram and some Patriot Sector 5. I've tested both brands. They both seem to be working great so which do i keep? Their both about same price (Corsair got rebate). Which is going to be more dependable in long run? I bought them with intention of returning one to local store I bought it from.

Keep the one with the longest warranty.

But IMO, corsair for me.

Same warranty on both.

I'd go Corsair but RAM is pretty much RAM... what looks cooler?

Patriot looks pretty cool. Its got beefer heatsinks. The corsait looks ptretty basic. Patriot runs @ 1.65 but i got set @ 1.5 not sure if it makes a difffernce..

Corsair have a very good RMA policy

They're both good brands, and for the most part, RAM is RAM. Personally, I'd pick whichever one looked cooler.

Decided to go with the Corsair. Just got off the phone with Intel they recommended that I stick with 1.5v ram.

^^ The corsair memory is also supported by my MB(Asus P8Z77-VLX). The Patiot is not all though it runs just fine. At end of day it probaly really doesn't make much of difference. Based on fact that Corsair has good reputation I'll probaly just stick with them.
