just what the subject says... i'm looking for the absolute best overclockable RAM (in your experience) for the 790XTA (Dual Channel DDR3 1866+).

And also, besides the best OC RAM, which of these that i currently have lying around are best for this board:

8gb ocz3p1333lv4gk

8gb ct2kit25664ba1067
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

(2) packages of kvr1333d3e9sk3/6g (3 sticks)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
(which i don't think will work b/c of dual channel compatibilities)

1 package of Mushkin enhanced 998699 (3 sticks)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
(same about dual vs triple channel)

FYI
i am installing a phenom x2 555 black with 10k velociraptors and will be OCing the CPU trying out the 9900 fan before moving to WC.

and do i have it right that if i want to use 1866 RAM, then i can only use 2 sticks in the DIMM3 and DIMM4 slots? the 1 and 2 must remain empty?


thanks for discussions...
