    well the reason I asked is from my experiences, AMD likes tight timings on the ram at whatever speed you choose, and Intel likes the higher MHz and doesn't care much about timings.

    Not all ram that can run tight timings can Oc for the stars, on the flip side there is a lot of ram that when the timings are relaxed will shoot for the stars. Also your requirement for low voltage ram takes you out of the latter category of ram, as to OC for high numbers usually requires more voltage to achieve.

    well to be honest the ram isnt going to mess with it that much, but in order to bring the rest of the PC up to snuff that PSU is questionable. I wouldnt really be too worried about the ram voltage then as long as the bios options support it.

    Not trying to dash any hopes or dreams here, just trying to pick some more info from you to get better help from the members.

    Lets be honest here. you can find mediore OC'ing ram at best for your budget. The killer clocking ram is still pretty expensive to attain.

    One last question is theis a 2X2GB kit your after or a 2X1GB kit of ram?

    Nice find, those sticks are considered great clockers with added voltage, and the price is pretty decent as well.

    In all honesty, you might as well forget about Overclocking on that power supply. I wouldn't overclock on anything less then 500watt, preferably 750-850watt for above average overclocking.
