Most corsair vengeance 1600s don't overclock at all, and most kingstons overclock quite well

the corsair has better timing's and voltage, you could get higher clocks out of that for the same price, not only that I think it looks better lol.

My Vengeance 1600 could do 1.20v no problem, but even with 1.6v it wouldn't move past 1620Mhz for some reason frown.gif And I've ran RAM at 1800+ on the same mobo before (the ram was Kingston 1333. Golden chips, it would seem smile.gif )
