Default how do you rate this ram?

ok, so im getting so new ram for my crappy desktop. its geil, and is from newegg. here's the link. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...144-309&depa=1
tell me what you think. i think i want it especailly becauise of the lifetime warranty and heat spreader. i only have $50. my other choice is http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...145-477&depa=1
but not heat spreader. give me your thoughts!

The Geil kit has better timings and nice looking heatspreaders, but I like Corsair for their stability and reliability.

If you don't mind spending a few dollars more for some Vantec Iceberq Copper Heatspreaders then get the Corsair kit http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...110-105&depa=0

u dont know why? ok, ill tell u why. cause one: ur computer runs smoother. two: it runs faster. three: it runs and makes less noise. four: u can push the limit of ur comp without having to worry about it screwing up when u know u can do more because cooling will keep ur system specs running cause when they run, they make heat but if u have good heating then its all about the overclocking baby! yeha...
