I was wondering what the difference between these 2 sets of ram. And is the HX really worth the extra money?

The HX apparently is better RAM the ZX appears to be the Value version of the same memory with with lower voltage running on it. I bet the HX version OC's better than the ZX. But not owning either of them I am not sure.
I have the ZX's and have heard people get them to ddr 500 easy (looser timings though.) I love mine.
Anyone else, maybe people who have this ram?
I believe one of them uses Infineon B die IC's and the other uses C die IC's. I could be wrong though...

but typical B die IC's will OC to 220-230 and C die will go to about 280 (OCZ Platinum PC4000 use Infineon C die IC's)

I could be wrong though...
My ZX goes to 275 rock stable.

I have the HZ myself, but I haven't gotten a chance to OC yet, but I should be able to by tomorrow. I bought the HZ because of the many suggestions on many forums that recommended it. I also looked at some benchmarks and the HZ beat out the ZX. I'll try to get an OC and post back to you by tomorrow.
