I have the OCZ and it's great, not with that board though. you may want to read up a little on it here. It's not exactly the same, but close.

O_O wow, the 1333 platinums clock to 1600 just thru memory level up ?! but what about the corsairs? i always thought corsair was a reputable brand with good chips...at the moment im deciding between the platinum or the gold 2x1 kits, the gold shaves around $30 off my cost and im thinking to use that for a better gpu =)
