Both OCZ and G.Skill are excellent for overclocking.

G.Skill is slightly better for OCing although OCZ is also very good.

That's an opinionated question, they're both good brand and usually equal in performance.

It's all on which brand you've had better luck with and you like better I suppose.

G.Skill and OCZ are bot very good overclockers. Both companies have their good ocing ram and bad ocing ram. Its also a bit of luck that determines how good of overclockers they will become. Mine for example, dont go very far but other who have the same model have gotton very good overclocks.

The G.Skill 1GB kits with TCCDs were godly OCers, but either one right now is an excellent choice.

I got my AMD X2 OD'ed @ 5.67GHZ w/ some really nice generic 2x128s


EDIT: kidding. But seriously, they're all good. It really does depend on what you prefer. I like OCZ.
