Do not do the same mistake I did!!! 4x512 mb of ram will barely overlock 1mhz lol! I regret buying 4x512 mb of ram, I sold one kit still selling the other kit of 2x512 tccd ram...I bought 2x1 kit from g.skill extreme series

I got that same set. They are fantastic; 280MHz 3-4-4-8 2.6V. Unfortunatly, the memory controller on my CPU limits my RAM OC once I go past 2.8GHz. Currently I'm running them at 240MHz (like with my TCC5 sticks but with looser timmings). The high timmings blow when it comes to benchmarks, but you will hardly notice a difference in real applications, plus you can multitask better too. Definetly worth it.

It's hit or miss, I have some on the way...some boards work with it and some do not. I read that OCZ RAM doesnt work on the A8N series boards but mine did. I have also seen people with DFI boards have problems with that RAM as well.

Hopefully mine will work

Since it seems your thread was highjacked on page 2 I will try to give you an answer. If you can find Gold VX, I do not think it is produced anymore, you will loose some speed. However you have PC4000 so you will still have more than most. People are putting in 4 sticks of 512MB PC3200 and are having trouble getting back to DDR400. You will be able to get above it but you will most likely not get back to where you are now with the 2x512 of VX. You may have to rework how you get to your 2.8 or you may not reach it at all. Now I may be way off but this is how I think it would be in your case. Better choice would be the 2 1GB sticks. I just invested in the OCZ Gold PC4000 2x1GB kit and will be unloading the Platinums soon.
