OCZ on the other hand while they make good memory seem to spend a lot more moeny and energy on marketing "new" products. While Corsair may not be exciting i think you would be hard pressed to find someone who was shiped dead XMS memory. Im not sure the same thing can be said of OCZ. and definatly not GEIL
If your not sure then don't post it Besides OCZ has top notch tech support.....I would say the best there is. So should you have a problem with the OCZ ram (that they hand test before shipping) then you will be taken care of.
Corsairs ram was at one point the best you could get no questions asked. But these days they are trying to compete with OCZ, Mushkin, kingston and even a bunch of "no names" but are failing. They come out with these stupid sticks with LED's on them that don't oc well at all. Take a look at their pc4000 for instance. I've seen many posts about people not being able to oc the ram more than a few mhz...and some haven't even made rated speed.
Just for fun look at this
First the Corsairs twinx 4000pro

Now the OCZ pc4000
Now you see from the results the OCZ did 270Mhz stable where the corsairs did 252mhz stable.
As for your "done nothing amazing".....well look at their OCZ EB line. Nothing anyone else has right now can touch it. I would even go as far as saying it's better than bh-5/6
So now you think I'm an OCZ fanboy, but I just post what I see on the net and in my computers....so
