I second the G.Skill

I didn't get the 1000mhz set because it was 40 dollars extra. I got the 2x2gb 800mhz instead and I am VERY pleased. Even though they are only 800mhz rated, I have mine running at 1127mhz 5-5-5-15 timings 2.1v 24/7 no problem.

EDIT: Darn you gibson, I guess I third them then

Yea, that's just what happens

I bought my 800 kit when they were 40 bucks cheaper and about 3 weeks later, the price drops to what it is now lol. They do run kinda hot though when oc'ed and at 2.1-2.2v. Make sure you either have some good airflow in that area or some aftermarket ramsinks.

I sure hope the fans I have set up now are gonna be sufficient, got 3 120s in front and one on the side pulling in then another 120 and the 200 pulling air out

So Gskill it is then, now I just need to sell some stuff laying around to get some money and were good

Thanks for the replies

nah those fans will be good enough. The reason I have aftermarket sinks on my ram is because they look kickass and because I'm on water, so I have very little airflow around that area.
