From what I heard, the HZ, HK, NQ, and NRs.....are all good for overclocking. With HZs being the best.

The Hk's and HZ's will overclock very similar. The NR's will overclock past 1000mhz. I have had mine at 1150mhz.

As stated...the HK's and HZ's will reach the same performance except the HK's will require about .5 more volts to reach them which isn't a problem. The HK's are a great deal.
