How 'bout them DDR2-800 timings?

After perusing this article, I've decided on the XMS 2. 800 seems to be the limit of usefulness for moderate overclocking (plus I don't want to cough up $300+ for memory).

As for the timings, is the $20 premium worth 4-4-4-12 over 5-5-5-12? I realize overclocking increases this latency, but how much farther will CS4 let me push an E6600 with air cooling (say a Tuniq Tower 120)?

Finally, where in the specs can you find out whether a module uses Micron chips? I can't find this info.

Corsair XMS2 6400C4 version 1.x still use Micron D9GMH chips (one of the best oc-able micron chips) . On the other hand the version 2.x don't (maybe Promos chips).

I suggest you buy an OCZ Ati Crossfire Certified model OCZ2A8002GK if you want to get Micron D9GMH for sure (price at newegg $286 after mail rebate)

Or Team Group Xtreme model TXDD2048M800HC4DC (All Team Group DDR2 Module never not use Micron) at TankGuys

In case that is true, theyre still showing the same potential.
