Default Corsair Vengeance Lowprofile 8GB vs. Mushkin Enhanced Blackline Frostbyte 8GB

The only difference I could find between these 2 brands is the voltage.. corsair stating 1.35v to 1.5v and the Mushkin stating 1.5v to 1.65v. I've read that the higher the voltage, the more wearing on the system.. so I guess the best option would be the corsair... but I just wanted some input from anyone who's had experience with these two brands/sets of RAM?

Mobo: Asus P8P67 Pro
Heatsink: Noctua NH-D14
CPU: i7 2600K
GPU: MSI 580GTX Lightning
PSU: Seasonic X-760
SSD: OCZ Vertex 3 120GB
Case: Silverstone FT-02B

It's really up to personal preference IMO, go with whatever you deem necessary. I don't believe difference in RAM voltage would really make an impact unless you're pushing it to it's limits
