I like BH-5s right now, cheap and they clock high with the right volts running through them.

You might try that Mushkin Redlin Gaara.....they apparently are lovin them volts and doing better than the OCZ VX line which coincidentally I saw a guy named $olid Necro over at pimprig doing a review on those OCZ and he was running 272MHz with 2-2-2-2 timings lol....this required 3.7 volts but those are some insane timings with that high *** speed

yeah I actually posted my friends results on here earlier today, 1.5-2-2-5 running 270MHz at 3.78v. Mind you they were 256MB modules but I was still jaw dropped by the results, I saw the review on XS of the redlines and I really think I'll be getting some BH-5s soon to try out and maybe even getting rid of the Rev2s altogether. Maybe I'll have to build another system altogether and compare the two *shifty eyes*

I really wanna show this lanparties true colours and with a fan over the RAM I really wanna pump some juice through something

wouldnt 3.7 volts practiclly bring the RAM almost to melting point?

I'll have a panaflo blowing over the stuff anyways and might even stick some RAM sinks on the BH-5s so melting isn't an issue. RAM can take a lot of voltage, I'd be more concerned about the overall stability of the board since the RAM would be draining a lot of juice, buttt I have that jumper mod to work with so it's not such a concern anymore.

Mushkin even states that they need active cooling in order to safely run at stock speeds.
