Default Ram limiting OC'ing

Will this help?

Product Details

Pretty cheap considering in the rebate valid till october

I like idea of having leds for both constant lighting and to indicate ram usage

I'm mainly looking to find some high performance ram that can handle an increased HTT/FSB without having to limit its own clock and timings

EDIT::

Changing to this, drastically cheaper with a much better rebate with the same specs, just no LEDS :P

Product Details

and I've also heard good things about g-skill? this or that?

EDIT::

$7 more for better timings? (no rebate though...)

Are those crucials wiht the rebate?

If they are with rebate and at 90 dollars, I would go with the crucial from Newegg for 70 dollars, but the black G-skill 800 HZ are the best!

I wouldn't say the HZs are the best, as there are cheaper sets, such as the Ballistix, that can rival their overclockability.

well don't get the Black Tracers.. they are just regular Ballistix with LED's or something... the Crucial Ballistix is overall better for the price than those HK's

Both sets I believe, are guaranteed D9 micron chips.

you wont find ram that you dont have to adjust its speed when you are going for a heavy duty AMD overclock.
to get your cpu as high as it will go, you will have to lower the ram speed.
i say,
1) crucial ...im trusting b1g on this
2)xms2 c4
3)HZ

Hmm... well then I guess I'll pass on a memory upgrade now and I'll get a Phenom sometime in december or early 2008 (birthday and christmas are in december)

And i'll upgrade to an AM2+ board with DDR3 ram in the middle of 2008
