Question Triple Channel DDR3 RAM...?

Here is NCIX page for RAM:

DDR3 Desktop Memory Triple Channel

My choices for RAM are either:

G.SKILL:
G.SKILL F3-12800CL8T-6GBPI-B Pi Black 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1600 CL 8-8-8-21 Triple Channel Memory Kit

Mushkin:
Mushkin XP XP3-12800 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1600 CL 7-8-7-20 Triple Channel Memory Kit

If I had $600 I'd possibly consider getting:

Corsair:
Corsair XMS3 Dominator TR3X6G1866C9DF 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1866 CL 9-9-9-24 Triple Channel Memory Kit

From the two choices I am willing to consider, what is the better one?!

I, personally have always Used Corsair or Patriot RAM (Corsair in the last 3 years at least now) with not one issue, problem or dead chip.
I think at this early stage for Triple Channel Ram, its subjective to which one is best.
If I had the choice, I'd put Corsair in. But that might not be the best one out there.
I haven't used anything but in a few years so...my opinion might be bias.

Regards,
ST

I'd go with the Mushkin, better timings at the same clock. Also, you can't forget the great customer support from them.

Mushkin all the way IMO!
