Heck I think I'll get some of that G. Skill PC4000. Was thinking about that OCZ stuff for almost 300 bucks but this is a much better deal.

Isn't G. Skill good with OCing with a DFI mobo?

seems like the PC4000 gets around 270-280 but with very high timings CL 3, though you may get a better chance with the PC3200 at lower timings as 2-3-3-10 or somewhere around there, but heck seems like a good deal for PC4000

G.Skill in their prime (dont know anymore) was considered the best for OCing period. Of course i think these where the LAs and had TCCD ram, dont quote me though. OCZ seems to be the mainstream OCers now.

what wrong with pc4000? wtf? unlike pc3200 ram pc4000 doesnt have to be oced. To make a pc3200 ram run at speeds of a pc400 u going to have to lossen the timign anyway. BUY the PC4000 man is almost the same price.
