With my current setup up i never really been overly sure of ocing them.

If i got one of the good sets do you really get more performance by ocing them or are they good enough anyways?

Will these
http://www.memory-configurator.com/p...kit/index.html

run quicker than these
http://www.memory-configurator.com/p...kit/index.html

without overclocking them? By the way the max my board says is 3200 so can i run the 4400 ok?

Sorry to be nooby but very unsure with memory.


Cheers guys
