Default OCZ Platinum VS. CORSAIR DOMINATOR

Im undergoing an i7 build and have narrowed my choice of ram down to either OCZ Platinum or Corsair Dominator. Im planning on buying 6 Gigs r tri-channel. The OCZ is cheeper and has better timings, but the CORSAIR has better reviews from what Ive seen...

Ive used OCZ in the past, I love the company, they have great customer service. Never used Corsair. I know this is probably an obvious choice, But I plan to overclock the ram to around 2000Mhz. Suggestions?


OCZ Platinum: $175
Cas Latency: 7
Timing: 7-7-7-24

Newegg.ca - OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory



CORSAIR DOMINATOR $185
Cas Latency: 8
Timing: 8-8-8-24

Newegg.com - CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Thanks alot!

The ocz has better timings and is $10 cheaper and a very good brand. Those or the G.Skills are the ones I would go with if I could get them but I cannot and will go with the dominators for they are fabulous ram as well.
