lol, congratulations, i aint doin that with my motherboard.
i run mine at 452 5-5-5-15 or 18, plenty fast.
but, in any event, either one of those sets will work for you.
as far as the timings go, from what i understand you will not need to worry about it (too much). the clock speed will be more of a determining factor of performance in your system than the ram, no matter what speed/timing you use.
i have had it explained to me that the timings of ram are rather unimportant unless you are doing some ram-heavy applications. and i don't know what they would be, nothing i use. and i assume that if you used them you would know about timing and how it affects performance.
so, actually, i don't think it will really matter which ram you use, just get a good brand and follow your heart...
as for what they mean exactly, that is way too complicated for me to explain to someone else, as i have feeble teaching skills.
here is a short summary:

P.S. Sora did you get your overclock problem figured out?
