okay so if i do overclock this 3000+ slightly, will the ddr400 RAM be enough head room? or should i go with something else? (sorry, i'm pretty unfamiliar to AMD overclocking, slowly trying to learn)

I don't think that is the best overclocking RAM, this is what I have:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227211
It does 1.5-2-2-5 timings at DDR500 with a 1:1 ratio @ 3.5v.

but again, that's spending more money. would ddr500 corsair value select allow for a small overclock?
