I can´t overclock my e8400 more than 3.78 GHz and I think is my memory limiting my OC (4gb Corsair XMS2 PC2-6400) so I want to buy a 4GB PC2-8500 DDR2 kit. What do you think of this kits? Which one OC's better?

All are good,but the last one has the best timings/voltages however the difference isnt much.

I managed DDR-960 (FSB=480/1920 MHz 6-5-5-12 or 4.32GHz processor speeds) speeds off of my cheap Crucial memory.

Of course, I did get Micron D9 chips, and not everyone did.

Have you tried OCing your memory without OCing your processor by increasing the ratio?

1. Drop the kingston off a cliff.
2. Flip a coin between G.Skill, and OCZ (as both are good).
3. Bypass all 3, and grab Mushkin.

yeah, also voltages increments, nothing seems to help, I can´t go any higher than 420 FSB.

Mushkin looks good, but a little pricey, do u think it´s worth the extra dollars?
