I would get the G-SKill Sniper. Good Frequency, good timing (could be better) but the voltage is high.

The corsair kit has good timing but at the expense of the frequency, its also a low voltage kit.

Do they make this exact kit color in a higher frequency?

Or could I replace the heat spreader with that one on the GSkill?

Probably but you can't tell how high it will go.

You better buy a kit that is rated for 2133Mhz with good timings than one that is rated for 1600mhz and not even sure if you can run it at 1866mhz.

I would personally take the the G Skill sniper without hesitation if it's the only two choices.

Go with the snipers, overall faster ram and you can lower the timings and frequency if needed matching the Corsair's performance.
