ok, did some searching, found this thread, it has some nice info on your chip.http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...00+o%2Fc+guide

i will have to do some research on the ram to see whats the difference between the 2.

edit: ok, with the ram. the corsair has tighter timming, so its alittle faster. the corsair is also cheaper with the MIR. and from my personal experience, OCZ isn't the best o/c'er.
