Whats the real difference? Sure the kit is like $2 cheaper, but honestly, it is a bit faster to run dual dual channel and why not fill up the empty spaces?
Also I changed the PSU to the Corsair CX430, will that be enough to overclock the video card and processor?

you will actually benefit from running your RAM at 1333 Mhz and tightening the timings. The Phenom II only supports 1333MHz DDR3—at least, officially—with a single DIMM in each memory channel. With four DDR3 DIMMs, 1066MHz is the standard. Such limitations are nothing new, of course. Previous Phenoms have long supported 1066MHz DDR2 memory, but only with a single DIMM per channel.

Where/how is it faster to run two dual channel setups? In the past populating all 4 dimms has limiting overclocking.

A cx430 isnt great. Sure its the best ~$20 choice, but your running a $200+ GPU...

Sandybridge only "officially" supports 1333MHz DDR3 as well.

What I was trying to get at was, running all four DIMMs with RAM isn't going to be faster.

The only quad channel boards that can take advantage of such are socket 2011

I thought that Socket 1155 can take full advantage of it too, with 3rd gen ivy chips at least.
