Question Best 2x2 ram kits

Ok i've given up on trying to get my board to run 4 sticks of memory, and since its getting so cheap these days i'm just going to go 2x2. Right now i'm looking at these ocz reapers.

Newegg.com - OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
or these
Newegg.com - OCZ ReaperX HPC 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Any one have 2x2 sticks that they have any experience with overclocking that are around the 100 dollar range?

1x4 will do better in OC'ing, since they have better latencies.

not exactly

those OCZ reapers actually have decent Latency and Cas Timings (almost comparable to 2gb Kits) and I think they are d9 Micron???

I don't think anybody on this forum has those sets (you'd be the first one to get them) but that 96$ kit seems like a good buy

and if you hate the overclocking ability give them to me I like having a lot of RAM

I would better prefer 2X2 RAM sets.
In India, we prefer Kingston and transend RAM.

Not many people use OCZ RAM. Does it go further than the ballistix?

i ordered 2 additional g's a week ago for my computer
put them in just a few minutes ago from this post...sure it's only read as 3.3gb by Vista, but it's all good

first was gskill...now it's ocz

I think I like ocz better...only because they give you a partnumber in cpuz...and gskill is nothing! lol
