Hey people, I know this question is getting tiring but I still am curious. I am running a 2.4C/IS7-G watercooled setup and I am throwing a gig of ram in there. I am stuck between: Geil 4000 Plat, Geil 4200 Plat, OCZ 4000 Copper, or the newly released OCZ 4200 "Premier Series". Believe it or not, they are all about the same price (course the Geil 4000 is "only" $300 but the rest are $350 and under so price really isn't an issue). I want this RAM to give me the most flexiblity in terms of OC'ing (in 1:1 and 5:4) and lasting one or two upgrades (possibly in a year with a Prescott or whatever Intel thinks up next). =) THANKS!!

If you want the ultimate in overclocking and don't mind the pricetag, I'd say go for it. But buying it to future-proof yourself against future technologies might not be a smart move with DDR-II the next big thing in the pipe.

if the prices are close then i suggest getting the most expensive one cause you usually get what you pay for

good luck

What is the current FSB you are running? Chances are it might not be necessary to run PC 4000/4200...

Grab some quality PC 3500, most will do at least 220+ mhz on a 1:1 ratio.
