I'm looking to upgrade my horrible value RAM to something better. I want a 4x4GB set @ 1600MHz and I was trying to decide between these two:

G.SKILL: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231315

Corsair: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233143

Which one would perform better? Is there another set that I should look at that is better than either of these?

I'd definately go for the Corsair Sticks, but it is just my personal choice. I have no comparisson or knowledge between Gskill Vs. Corsair other than they are both good names in memory modules. Corsair Vengeance have a good rep and I plan on puuting the same set of Vengeance sticks in my pc.

Both sets of RAM have the same performance ratings so they will perform the same at their specified frequencies and latencies. The G.Skill does have a 2N rating which is minutely slower than 1N but you'd never see it.

In my experience Corsair and G.Skill memory are both pretty similar. Never had a bad stick from either, both always run at specs. Lately I've bought G.Skill just because Corsair memory seems to be slightly more expensive, at least where I live.

Personally I would go with whichever is the best for price - which would be neither of those kits, but two of these kits at NCIX.  4x4GB DDR3-1600 for $68 shipped.  Well below the rest.

I don't trust Kingston as I've had very bad experiences with them in the past.

^ That's a generic memory kit (1333 CL9) and it is what he is trying to upgrade from.  Such memory will prevent him from overclocking further than 3.5-3.6Ghz due to locked multiplier and low RAM binning.  It is extremely highly likely that the kit you recommend will never hit DDR3-1600 due to low binning of generic memories, especially 4GB DIMMs and 4GB DIMM kits.  DDR3-1600 must be considered a minimum for 1055T overclocking.
