Hey guys,

I'm putting together a system and was wondering what is better for overclocking, LOW LATENCY PC3200 or VALUE PC4000?

From current reviews, looks like I'll be getting the MSI Neo4 SLI board w/ an A64 3200+.

This will be my first attempt at overclocking, I've read many guides including the following:

This guide states that if I get higher speed RAM, I can simply raise the FSB until it matches. This way I avoid dealing with memory timings and also means I save a few bucks on RAM:

Example:

http://tinyurl.com/6l3vm $82 vs. http://tinyurl.com/4rfg3 $115

Any advice will be appreciated.

TIA

I don't know the answer to your question but you are more likley to find your answer if you post in Overclockers Corner

My goal is to save some money on the RAM. Two sticks @ $82 vs. $115 is about $66, which can go towards some other component.

I'm just wondering if I'll get the same OC results from using this cheap PC4000 ram than I would from using expensive PC3200.

im not really sure, you should post in the overclocking part of the forum. Im leaning toward the pc3200 because i dont think you should ever buy cheap memory.
