Question What's the difference of these ram sticks?

here's the links:


is the difference just .5 of a timing? Is there something I'm missing or are the colors just different?

I think all that is different is the "pt" on the end of the one model. That spec is "platinum heat spreaders".

Personally i don't think you'll find any difference between the two, so buy the cheaper one....

Lian Li Aluminum Case
Intel D975XBXK2R Mobo
Core 2 Duo E6700 CPU
EVGA 8800 GTS Video Card
Corsair XMS 2 x 1gig RAM
Zalman 9500 CPU cooler

they are the same sticks i believe with a different heat spreader. there is no difference in timings i am assuming newegg just didn't include as much info as zipzoomfly. zipzoomfly listed the same timings but listed 0.5 higher for AMD systems
