is the mushkin a 4x2 or a single 8? might save you hassles to check the slots on your mobo if you're going to be packing in 32gb

not much difference between them spec wise, the cas latencies seem the same but that frequency number seems to be an outlier between the two

is there much of a price diff between the two? i'd get the lesser if it's more than a tenner diff, but i'm an epic ch33psk8

it's not ECC server modules so i don't think there's much between them.

nice buy i think, i need the same for a little virt box i'm building

fast ram isn't worth the extra cost for no noticeable difference. buy whatever is cheapest that's listed as compatible with your mobo. Kingston 8GB DDR3-1333MHZ or something like that and spend the money on a bigger ssd or video

Is 32gb over kill?

When does ram stop giving incremental performance improvements in relation to size?
