If someone can post their OC results with any of these sets that would be great
Try $140 USD for 8GB. That is cheap!
Why pay more if you aren't gonna get much faster results? Unless you want name brand... That is if you can even get faster results seeing as how I am at theoretical max.
And by results, I am not even talking real world (because I promise you there won't be much) You won't even see much benching difference between the modules.

2.2v and upwards seems to kill DDR2 pretty rapidly.
Yep. My last set of Crucial Ballistix were great, fast, 980mhz 4-4-4-10, 2.2v, died in 3 months.
RMA, same great results, same quick death. Mind you I was folding on that system but regardless, the degrading speed is unacceptable to me.
