Sounds like the Abit is doing better. You can't go wrong with either, but pick whichever one seems the most stable, is faster, or overclocks better.

I'd stick with Abit. Try to get them to do an exchange for you saying something is wrong with it or something.

The Abit one tends to perform better then the ASUS one in gaming performance and all that. Plus the ABit would OC higher then the ASUS ones.

I thought the Ballistix was one of the best 2GB OCing ram, because it runs pretty well on the DFI boards.

But another 2x1GB set I'd recommend would be the OCZ Platinum, good price for good performance. But most haven't gotten to high speeds with it though.
