Default Overclockable Ram comparison

I am going to put in a new set of 2x1gb ram for this other computer that i am building and i have narrowed the sets down to 3. I am going for the best priceerformance ratio. Here they are

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231032
G.Skill extreme series @ $199

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227210
OCZ platinum @ $204.99 after rebate

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231020
G.Skill w/ 2.5 cas latency @ $178.00 (this one had a slightly lower voltage so i thought that it would oc better, that could be way off though)

Thats all of them...

Nick

If you're going for the Best Price/Performance Ratio, then you should buy a 2X1G value kit. If you're not planning on OCing.

If you are planning on OCing, i'm not so sure that there is a Price/Performance Ratio for OCin' RAM? I guess the GSKILL extreme series?

Yeah i am planning to overclock, the only real difference between the ocz and the $199 g.skill is the voltate and the price by 5 dollars. It says that the ocz has a voltage of 2.6 while the extreme ranges from 2.6-2.75 or something like that. Anyways i think its a tossup really...but thats just me

I can't really add a lot of input because I haven't OCed with my new ram yet but I purchased the OCZ that you are looking at (when it was on a better sale) and it arrives today

If you are going to wait a little before buying I can let you know in a few days how it OCs for me

I have the G.Skill extreme, though im disappointed between my crucial ballistix doing close to DDR600 2GB's wont obviously OC that well lol

Not bad for the money, went from 230 to 200 in about a week lol. i bought them for around 210.

Getting a good OC, very stable. Love the heatspreaders lol. Works with a lot of voltages 2.5-2.9V. Timings are relatively low 2-3-2-5 DDR500 would be 2.5-3-2-5 i get around 260-270 though my mem dividers dont really work as i want them too lol. 2.8V for me though its like 2.85 really on this DFI mobo 3-3-2-5
