Is this ram good for me?

I have found this OCZ Platinum XTC 1333 latency 7 ram in a Danish online shop. Is it an ok alternative to Mushkin Enchanted Redline 3x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 6?
I will be overclocking them about 25% giving them a 1600mhz latency 7-7-7-20.
Will it burn down my rig or is it perfect? Any other alternatives?
I will use it for gaming. :ange:

It should be alright. I'm not positive you'd be able to run them at 1600 mhz, CL 7. If you can find 1600 CL 7 sticks, it would be better as they would definitely run at that.

I think i will change their latencies to 8-8-8-24. That should be perfect.

But if i found a 1600mhz CL7, when i overclock the BCLK, wouldnt that make the ram mhz way too high?

No. All of the sticks will start at 1333 mhz. The 1600 mhz may go higher than the 1333 mhz sticks, but you don't need to set it that high. The timings will just stay tighter with the 1600 CL 7 sticks.

You truly have an answer to everything, dont´cha!
Btw. I have found these Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz 6GB CL7. Will they do the job?
I am sorry about all the questions, but its my first home build, and i want to do it right.

Those would also be good.
