OCZ AMD Black Edition Memory or Fatality

Hello,
I am building a system around a Phenom II 965 processor. I haven't selected a mobo yet, but there are a couple of deals for OCZ branded DDR3 1600 memory that I'd like to take advantage of.

They are:
Special Ops Edition http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227496&Tpk=amd%20black%20edition%20ocz

AMD Black Edition
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227496

Fatality Edition
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227507

All are DDR3 1600. The Fatality Edition is CAS 7, the other 2 are CAS 8. As they are all within a couple dollars of each other, should I go with the CAS 7 or is the AMD Overdrive certification of the Black Edition make that the preferred memory.

While I haven't selected a mobo yet, it will be a 790 based board.

Thanks.

    Unless you are getting them with a combo deal from Newegg, I would not recommend any of them compared against the G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM. OCZ has been having issues recently with AMD motherboards and their RAM (not playing nice with each other). I would not recommend them over G.SKILL or Corsair.
  2. ^ I heard that G.Skill Ripjaws sometimes have a problem with AMD board... Because of this I would recommend Mushkins but maybe its s non-issue?
