Default very confused

ok im buying RAM soon and i want one of these 2 corsair's

http://www.megapc.com.au/index.php?s...ll&page=search

(the top 2 rams only not the rest)

my problem is that they appear to be exactly the same except one has the 'pro' tag added and an extra $35 to boot.

im confused as to why this is so both are ddr400 both have latencys of 2-2-2-5 and both are dual channel i see no reason for this mark up.

any views?

The XLPROs have a different heat spreader and activity LEDs.
