Like i said before. One comes with a fancy box and the stock crappy heatsink aside from that, THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE!

I would just get the 520hx, the extra voltage on the 620 is only on the 3v rail anyway. Maybe switch out the reapers for a 2x2 kit of crucial ballistix. They werent available when i bought my 4gb set
