I'll soonly upgrade my config to P6X58D-E+i7 950.
But I'm not sure what memory fit the best ?
G.Skill Kit Extreme3 3 x 2 Go PC10600 PK -> 1.50/1.60V; 7-7-7-18
OCZ DDR3 3 x 2 Go PC12800 Platinum Edition -> 1.65V; 7-7-7-24
G.Skill Extreme3 3 x 2 Go PC16000 Trident + Turbulence Fan -> 1.60V; 9-9-9-24
Other ?

What is the best without O/C ?
What is the best for overclocking ?

For OC'ng,the first one is the best because of having the lowest timings.

In addition, what do you think about Kit Extreme3 3 x 2 Go PC12800 Trident Series (1.65V; 6-7-6-18) which has lower timings ?
Do you think it is possible to keep those timings using this memory but at default i7 950 "PC10600" rate ?
Do you think we can ever get better timings, loweling frequency (PC10600 instead of PC12800) ?

You can run memory 1600 in 1333, if that's u mean. The timings are, should be, at least same with 1600 Mhz. Maybe better (lower), but I haven't experimented on that. You can try it.

I'd go with this:

G.Skill PI 1600 works excellent at stock or overclock.
