My Build is

Mobo - ASUS P6X58D Premium

PSU - Corsair 1000w

Cooler - Water

RAM - *Missing* (Looking for some which would be best for my system)

Case - Corsair 800D

CPU - Intel Core I7-930

HDD - Samsung F3 Spinpoint

GPU - 2x 5970

OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

And i'm gonna OC the CPU to about 4ghz.

I was thinking some RAM that can get OC'ed, i made a thread before like this and a guy suggested i get the CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 7-7-7-20

I asked if anyone can confirm that those are near the best, but i had no reply even after several days, so i decided to make a new thread, and here we are. So, is there any better ram that is better than those above? (for oc)

I see, thanks. What timings do you think i can get with those G.Skill ones?

Well, they're rated at 7-8-7-24 timings at 1.5v. The Intel chips have a maximum RAM voltage limit of 1.65v. You would just have to play with them to see what they'd do at 1.65v if that's what you want to do. Even the stock CAS 7 timings at 1600MHz is very fast.

Hard to say. I usually do trial error for the timmings to find the most stable condition.
I change also the frequency if necessary.
Good luck with your OC.

Perhaps someone else can help you with the last question.

So, what would the difference be between 6gb and 12gb of those RAM? (In games)

Only for games...the diffrence between 6 and 12 GB RAM is , according to my knowledge, not much..
Not necessary for gaming to go 12GB RAM at this moment...

You will see absolutely no difference between 6GB & 12GB when gaming. Even 4GB is plenty for a gaming system.
