Apparently OCZ is difficult to get outside of Europe or at least a small part of it (Netherlands). Apart from availability it would be my first choice because of the nice CAS latency. But if you can't find it or only at extreme prices, Corsair is a very good alternative and apparently widely available. It has the drawback of CAS 9 latency, but you will probably not really notice that difference except under extreme circumstances. My advise: Go for the Corsair if you can't find the OCZ.
Thanks! so i can still play around with some moderate overclocking ? ...
Im in denmark though.. but the platinium OCZ is ripped of the shelfs i guess.. the Corsair will save me 150$...
All the more reason to go for the Corsair. You can overclock easily the DDR3 just beyond 1600 and the CPU to 3.6 or even higher with proper cooling.
I know this is a little late but I started looking at memory on my own. There is no problem finding that OCZ memory in the States. Also ZipZoomFly has it advertised at only $142, but of course there is no stock.
Incidentally I remembered this post but could not remember the title but as frustrated as I was with this Jive Software and it's lousy search tool I instead went to good old Google and it was right at the top of the list.
