Would this memory be any good over other memory such as G.Skill ???? Im building a computer is my setup is as follows.

I love corsair. It is some of the best memory in the world. I've always had good luck with them. I put one of those in a computer I built for a client, and it works great! Go with it... Corsair FTW

low strife, theres not much a difference i see that but theres also not much of a difference in price + with the dominators you get the cool $30 fan.. Plus they have a $45 mail in rebate.

Word on the street is that the fan that comes with the kit is rather clunky and doesn't fit very well, I prefer G.Skill. I've had several Dominators, and most have been DOA, and the others that survived didn't OC as well as their hype. I guess it was just a bad experience for me, but I'm putting in my vote for G.Skill.

Ended up getting Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) have seen and read good reviews on this memory. One of the reviews says they overclock to 1000MHz stable with 5-5-5-12.

My Patriot memory ran fine. I ran a memtest as soon as I got them to make sure the sticks didnt have any errors. I got them to about 1089 overclocked with 2.2v. The sticks stock are 800 so I guess not too bad. So anyone who is curious about patriot memory dont be worried.
