Hello i am putting a ASUS Crosshair V in my system. I am thinking of getting this ram:

Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9D3K2/8G

is this ram good for mild overclocking and is it's speed/performance good.

You're asking people to vote.

If the modules are on the QVL, then they should work. You should be able to overclock the CPU, but you probably can't overclock the memory over it's rated speed and voltage.

I suggest that you read the Crosshair V reviews on Newegg and other sites. Several reviewers mention what memory kit(s) they used and the issues they ran into. Search for Kingston to dramatically limit the results.
