If it has the same tech specs, I would say it should be the same. The difference being better quality being more reliable and / or easier to manufacture.

You should probably be looking at other components if you are looking at performance gains, unless you are "min-maxing" at which point you would not be asking this question, especially here.

Just make sure to check what your motherboard takes.

We accidentally ordered non-ECC RAM once for our HP workstations and they didn't take the cheap 'gamer hyper Xtreme racing car red' RAM, only ECC.

My computer also only takes ECC RAM. Which is sad as it is super expensive to upgrade yet I do not get any benefit from the ECC functions... Pay more for lower performance... Dual Xeons were awesome though, but they are getting dated...

Yeah, running Xeon E5-1620 v2 @ 3.70GHz here, still works fine some 10 years on.

Luckily it has a lot of memory bays, so we just bought I think a lot of 2 GB ECC to make it to 16 GB (up from 8 GB), which still holds up fine.
