Which one to get? Corsair Value Select vs G.Skill NT

I have P5G41T-M LX MoBo and it has only 2 Memory Slots of DDR3 1333. Above 1333 would be useless to get. Which one is better in terms of performance, timings etc.? Need to buy 2x 4GB modules (Total 8GB Dual Channel).

1. Corsair Value Select 4GB DDR3 1333
Corsair Memory

2. G.Skill NT 4GB DDR3 1333
G.SKILL NT 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600)

If you want to believe Newegg, they appear identical in their specs. They might have different subcomponents and different quality control.

I'd buy on the basis of return policy, price, and support.

Unless one turns out to be faulty, I'd be very surprised if you could tell which was in your PC.

GSkill:

Cas Latency: 9

Voltage: 1.5V

Timing: 9-9-9-24

Corsair:

Cas Latency: 9

Voltage: 1.5V

Timing: 9-9-9-24

Hmmm Corsair costing me very little more than GSkill.. I never used GSkill before and mostly used Corsair but had faulty rams few times... U r right there specs they are same and both have limited life time warranty!

I've been using g.skill exclusively for the past 5 years and haven't had a single issue.

Normally I would go with G.skill, but having read the spec. it specifically says it's single channel memory, it doesn't always mean it won't work in dual mode but I'd check it out first.
I agree with ignatzatsonic I would be very much amazed if you could tell the difference.

There is no such thing as "dual channel" memory.

here is an article right from crucial explaining it;

pparks1 im also thinking to get GSkill this time actually i wanted to buy GSkill Ripjaw X series DDR3 1333 but unfortunetly they are only available in 4GB kits (2x 2GB) and not available in 8GB kits (2x 4GB) anywhere here. But NT series caught my eye

Thanks for the link pparks it is useful to clear the concept. Cyclic if i will buy 2 same modules so they will be on dual channel mode by motherboard.

Both are apparently good brands, but I have no experience with GSkill. I will say, however, it is tough to beat Crucial in terms of support, service, and quality.
