but taking CORSAIR (or CRUCIAL it is the same) and low latency models will give you stability.
I don't think Corsair and Crucial make the same RAM.
Crucial intentionally puts the slowest timings into their RAM so that it has more headroom against instability.
Corsair comes with normal-ish (not too aggressive or conservative) timings, until you get into their low latency stuff.

There's some people who can tell you what chips they use in their sticks of RAM (i.e. BH5), as well as how the PCB is made.

cheap ram sucks, and as soon you will start to compress video or encode mpeg2 you will understand why.
I don't think this is true in my opinion. If it works, it works.

The difference ? you can't feel it but your computer will. Less aborted DVD burning, more stability, no cheap chinese capacitor that leaks after 3 months.
Have you seen a cheap power supply have leaky capacitors after just 3 months?
I have never ever heard of this. I have heard of motherboards having leaky capacitors, but those problems usually take 2 years to show up.

You're right, they don't. Crucial manufactures their own DRAM chips, while I believe Corsair purchases DRAM chips from other manufacturers (not that that necessarily has anything to do with the quality of the final product).

In all the tinkering I've done in my computer the SATA cable connection hasn't been a problem. With the number of hard drives/CD/DVD drives in my system (three hard drives plus two optical drives), the advantages of the much thinner SATA cabling more than make up for any potential dislodging of the cables.

Oh yes, and don't forget - no more jumpers to mess with on SATA drives! (Although PATA drives had tried to reduce the need for changing jumper settings by implementing Cable Select.)
