Best OC RAM for 790XTA-UD4

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

(2) packages of kvr1333d3e9sk3/6g (3 sticks)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820139043
(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=N82E16820226066
(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...

  1. My vote... G.SKILL ECO Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800). Great timings and low standard voltage requirements, so they give you more room to increase voltage if required to maintain an acceptable overclock.
  2. those look killer. 1.35v, thats crazy with already crazy timings. thx tecmo.
