Hey guys,
I will soon upgrade CPU and GPUs, so I was randomly going through threads on my future W3530 when I found one from ChickenInferno where ppl where talking about better RAM potentially allowing a lower vCore.

Considering my massive upcoming upgrade and the fact that my OCZ are not known for being reliable overclocker companions, would it benefit me to upgrade to a better kit (while keeping it kind of budget).
I'm kind of set up with 12800 C7 but any suggestion would be highliestliest-ly appreciated =)

So far, I've spotted those greemlinz

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...es)-_-20145286
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2800CL7T-6GBPI

Please please keep it under 170*1.3 - 10 = US$200 (way to math up euro prices).
AND I'm ordering in France / Switzerland so my brand options are
Gskill
Corsair
Kingston
Crucial

Thanks !

ChickenInferno thread, for reference

RAM doesn't matter at all... The only thing RAM is going to effect is your VTT or QPI/DRAM voltage. The faster the memory, the more VTT voltage you will need. The difference in vcore isn't going to happen, or if it does happen it's going to be so nominal because your VTT voltage is off.

If you have the 1600mhz CAS 7 kit, that's fast enough. For everyday usage I can't tell the difference between 2000mhz CAS 8 and 1600mhz CAS 7 so I really would avoid upgrading.
