I don't even know what state my modules are in.... They were getting rather hot at 2.2v so I have employed an Antec SpotCooler.
Again, I think it's the heat spreader design. The clips at the top put uneven pressure on the sinks, and the TIM and sink tear away from the ICs on the side opposite of the clip over time. I wish they would use an epoxy resin and fin design like those found on the Corsair Dominator/XMS series or Patriot Vipers. Yea, that's the ticket, cut cost by ditching the LED and put better thermal solutions on!

I'm using the BL2KIT25664AA804, u'r first link.

No problem, it's alright to be n00 at this. Everyone is n00 at some point, so no worries.

DDR2-800 OCing to 1100, is quite good. I was gonna go for some DDR2-1066 Stix, but found out that most anything above DDR2-800 is just super OC'd 800 stix anyway, so why pay more $$ for something that can do the same thing and costs less $$? They're a little shakey @ 1100MHz, but run rock solid @ 1066. Much better than the GeIL Ultra DDR2-800 stix that I had. From now on, I'm going Crucial all the way. You gotta luv the quality of these things.

Is it easy to overclock them to 1000MHz+?

Sounds good. Crucial is beast at memory. My Ballistix cruise easily to 1066MHz. I got them up to 1100, but it wasn't very stable. Even got them down to 5-5-5-15 1T for a little while but again, wasn't stable.
