    i cant decide, i know corsair is suppose to be a good firm and they offer the same guarantee but its half the price. £70 for 16 gb ram seems cheap, even if the komputer bay stuff is even cheaper(not touching that). so has anyone had any better experience or knowledge that crucial ram is worth the extra money or safer?

    thanks in advance

    Both works fine.
    I use Corsair and never had any problems.
    I own the 8GB and 16GB by them and they work great.

    I agree with this guy. Running 16GB Crucial in one machine and 16 GB Corsair in another. No problems with either. The Corsair was/is less expensive than the Crucial.
