hey... OCZ makes great RAM as well and I can personally vouch that OCZ Platinum rev. 2 3200 RAM works great in your board. Plus, it is cheaper than the g-Skill stuff.

a couple things to note.... the Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe won't run a 1T command rate over a htt speed of about 240 so when overclocking you won't be able to go higher than that.

Samsung TCCD work great on this board as they don't like high volts which the board can't supply anyway. The OCZ is certified to run up to 3.0v though. (2.9v +5% = 3.0)

You'll want either TCCD/TCC5 or Winbond with DDR Volt Booster. All new GeIL Value Blue 1GB (512MB x 2) uses Winbond UTT-BH5 (aka new BH5, not as good as the old stuff, but about the same). Look for part number GE1GB3200BHDC. It must have the BH in there for tere to be BH5 chips. If you get a kit that doesn't have this part number, then you got an old kit of this stuff with Mosel Vitelic chips (I think?). It costs under $80, too, so basically if you get BH5 chips, it's a steal, and if you don't, you can always return it. Newegg's policy is pretty good. Also, don't forget the DDR Volt Booster if you're going with RAM with Winbond chips (BH5, BH6, CH5, CH6, UTT, UTT-CH5, UTT-BH5, doesn't matter). They only OC well with a lot of voltage and the only way to give it that much on an Asus board is either the Booster or volt-modding your board, which will void the warranty, and I don't think you want that .

If you want TCCD, G.SKILL is the way to go. Cheap (considering ) and reliable.
