Overclocking RAM isn't worth it IMO. Anything above DDR3 1600 shows minimal gains in performance

if you are into heavy oc'ing and benching, then i'd go with the 2000's. if not the 1600's are fine

Every decent ram set is easy to overclock. You have three options, go for speed, ram timings or a balance of both. I actually disagree with burn, i think it is worth overclocking your ram, generally for ddr3 you'll get better results going for speed because they wont handle timings too much lower then they are at stock. If you get a good 1600 set like the gskill ripjaws your should be able to squeeze them out to 1800mhz+. It wont give you much real world gain but for benching it will.
