    when it boils down to it, how fast do you hope to ever get on your clock?

    I think honestly ram is over raited. In about 90% of the applications you will use, the latency wont be noticable.

    I usuaully first get whatever is cheapest, around 1600mhz speed class, and then after that, i get what looks the nicest.

    I'm having good luck with my Crucial Ballistix DDR3 1333 Cas 6 sticks even on this broken to hell motherboard. They booted 1600mhz at cas 7. Waiting for new motherboard to see what they can really do.

    Those OCZ I went with should be decent.. A few people have them running at 6-6-6-19 @ 1.9v so well see!

    Did the Super Talent name scare you away? Too bad man, because I promise that the IC's in the Super Talents are better than the OCZ's you bought and they are cheaper. Hope they work out well for you.

    DDR3 is too easily for speed, focus more on latency.

    For that there is usually three brands for that, OCZ, Corsair, and Mushkin. Since my OCZ Gold low-voltage kit is running at standard voltage 1.65V, I might be looking forward to lowering its 9-9-9-24 timings.
