Okay so we know on DFI mobo website, they recommend us several memory modules(including OCZ) for OVERCLOCKING, unlike others which recommend several memory modules (for compatiblity, NOT oc'ing) for their mobo's.
And we do also know that OCZ is the BEST memory for DFI nF4 mobo's. So which one to go guys?Plus, does OCZ goes with the new DFI ATI mobo?

OCZ is good but it sure isn't the best value.

Try G.Skill

If it's OCZ Gold VX, you may have the problem of a cold boot. Look on www.dfi-street.com for more info. People have gotten their DFI mobos to run with OCZ Gold VX successfully, though, but it may take a little bit of work.

Me personaly, I would go with what DFI recommends. Some OCZ ram will give you the "cold boot" problem. So to avoid that problem just go with what they recommend.

The RAM you chose will depend on a number of other components you will be using. So what CPU are you gonna be using? What cooling? What type of OC are you trying to achieve?

I don't really understand this poll... The poll seems pretty rhetorical to me. From what I do understand, you are asking us if you should either buy OCZ RAM, or OCZ RAM...
Are you being sarcastic? If you are, I can't really tell.

No. Actually I was asking whether DFI recommended mems or OCZ mems work better on DFI nF4/the new ATI chipset.
If you DO look at the website, those mems recommended by DFI are NOT entirely OCZ's but contain the likes of G.Skill for instance.
Basically if u don't wanna vote for the poll, it's fine. Just share with us which is a better go.
