Yes, I have a big preference for anything with the word Corsair on it.

And I'm itching to do some overclocking.

I'm deciding between these two-

The Vengeance is $48.99 with free shipping running at 1600, while the Dom's are $44.99, running at 1333 with the same timings and a higher voltage (1.6v).

Vengeance kit is the way to go.

As a fellow Dominator owner (4x2gb 1600 MHz CL8), I can confidently suggest you go with the Vengeance.

The Dominators are fun to look at because they look cool, and they feel sturdy in your hands. Other than that, there is no reason to get them. Go for the lower voltage, cheaper, faster RAM.

Thanks, ordered and rep for everyone.

I am going to have to disagree and say the Dominators or a set of RipjawX's would have been a better choice for overclocking, as these Vengence kits have virtually no oc headroom.

see what I mean

Also I have a kit I received yesterday brand new out of the box and the hs was so loose that it literally fell off, time for RMA looks as though quality control is slipping at Corsair
