Usually I would go with the cheaper option (mainly because I'm cheap), however Corsair has a very good reputation and I've never really heard of Mushkin...

Mushkin makes good ram as well.
I think a member on here has used it before?
Maybe Cabbs, um not sure who.

I've heard good things about mushkin, but have never used their memory. The advertised timings for the mushkin are better.

I'd go with the Corsair because the heatsink is a bit bigger, and my friends and I use Corsair ram.
But I am sure both are good, so go with whichever one you want.

I'd go with the Mushkin. It's a reliable brand, it's cheaper, and (as somebody mentioned before me) the advertised Cas latency and timings are lower.
