Any experience with RAM from "Komputerbay" or "MacMemory Net" both through Amazon?

My 2006 Mac Pro 1,1 2.66 GHz Quad currently has 13 GB of RAM installed.  I would like to take out the two original half-meg modules and replace them with either two 2GB modules or two 4GB sticks, which would bring my total installed RAM up to 16 GB or 20 GB respectively (not going overboard here, I know).

 

I'm doing my due diligence through Google searches, of course, but asking here too feels like an obvious must.

 

While I'm fully aware that Crucial and OWC are usually the top recommendations when folks ask about RAM,  these offerings from Amazon through  Amazon  merchants by the name of "Komputerbay"and "green tech" are too tempting to leave unexplored and/or unresearched.  Heat  might be a concern.
