In my region, Pny costs cheap than corsair ram.

Can I choose this particular pny ram over corsair?
Is there any difference in performance?

Depends. The PNY has timings of 16-18-18-42, the Corsair has timings of 16-20-20-38, putting the PNY in a very, very slightly better lead as far as XMP performance. But since we are talking about nanoseconds difference, it's not something you'd ever see. Ever.

Dram OEM for the Xlr8 is SkHynix.
Dram OEM for the Corsair Vengeance LPX is SkHynix.

So apart from any minor timing differences, it's the same ram underneath a different paint job.

Corsair claim to fame and popularity with the LPX series is its height. The PNY is 47mm tall, the Corsair is 34mm tall. That's a distinct advantage with larger aircoolers.
