What is best for overclocking?
F1-3200USU2-2GBHS pc3200 2.5-3-3-8

or

F1-3200USU2-2GBHZ pc4000 3-4-4-8

My problem is that I allready have payed for the F1-3200USU2-2GBHS ? Should I return it for the F1-3200USU2-2GBHZ? I am going to use it for overclocking my Athlon X2 3800+ (260-270 fsb) on a DFI UT Ultra D motherboard.

Best regards.

I HIGHLY recommend you stop your order and go for the HZ.

ESP if you're looking for a 250-270 HTT.

You can run it 1:1 and max out your CPU.

Any other ram will put you in odd situations with the overclock.
1:1 is your ticket.

with 2x1G kits, its usually better to go with the faster memory out of the box, ie..DDR500/PC4000. It's usually difficult to get high clocks with those larger sticks. So take advantage of the guaranteed +50hmz speed.

I have the 1 stick version of the HZ, and I have it stable at 280mhz. It's great, definitely go for it.

GBHZ is the model of the RAM.

i read a few reviews, and the HS was about 3mhz slower than the HZ at max overclock, that was on anandtech... but i'd still recommend getting the HZ as it's guranteed to run at 250, then up to 270 (which review said it peaked at about 277) or maybe ven higher...
