    basically 2 x 2048mb of ddr2 800 pc2-6400 so that is 4gb in total

    the 2 sticks have heat sinks, should I buy better heat sinks or anything else, or are those good enough

    also to overclock that stuff, lets say to 1200, then I need my mobo to support 1200 and thats it? do I need any products to allow me to OC that far, or will I be able to on those heatsinks??

    thanks

    oh also one more thing

    is this better than the 1st one, I bought the vipers yesterday

    http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=018216&cid=RAM.346.754

    these ones are 1066, and I can just OC the 800s, plus they don't have heatsinks

    input?

    1. No, you don't need to get new ramsinks.

    2. The OCZ ram does have heatsinks on them

    3. You can overclock as high as the ram will let you using a combination of proper timings, voltage and speed. Not all ram overclocks to 1200mhz. To find out how high you can overclock them, you bump up the speed slowly and test the ram using memtest.
    BloodTotal says thanks.
