The ones you have listed all look to be about the same performance to me.

That said, the Corsair or OCZ appear to have better cooling. So that narrows it down a bit. And now it's up to you. If it were me, I would choose between those two and leave it up to looks, prices, or availability.

A couple minutes exploring the internet, and they look to be about the same prices, the OCZ just a tad cheaper by about $10. Personally I would go with the OCZ, lifetime warranty and a little cheaper. But the Corsair appears, just from looking at it, to have better cooling and higher availability.
