PC2700 DDR - Corsair vs Samsung?

Folks, which of the following would you recommend for the best OCing performance on a MSI 845 Ultra-ARU?

Corsair CMX512-2700C2 512MB CAS2.0 ($178 Newegg)
Samsung DDR333 PC-2700 512mb CAS2.5 ($150 Newegg)

I have heard great things about both on this and other forums, but notice the Samsung is CAS2.5 while the Corsair is CAS2.0. The cost is not an issue to me, I am only concerned with which one will perform the best.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Samsung any day. It will overclock far beyond the Corsair.

    As you can see Samsung PC2700 DDR RAM overclocks higher than Corsair PC2700 DDR RAM.
