My System Specs

Default

Pick up the Samsung sticks, they are 44$ at newegg and they overclock like mad.

Overclocking your ram won't cause instability, you just have to tweak your overclocks and test for instability.

Here's some stable overclock's I've been able to get:

1600mhz my timings were 8-8-8-24-1T with a tRFC of 128 and voltage of 1.410.

1866 my timings were 9-9-9-24-1T with a tRFC of 128 and voltage of 1.410.

2000mhz my timings are 9-10-10-24-1T with a tRFC of 138 and voltage of 1.475.

Now this is in quad channel so if you are running a single kit in dual channel you will be able to get the tRFC way down and probably be able to get tighter timings. All you do is set the ram at the desired overclock, boot into windows and then run prime95 to see if any workers fail. If the workers fail then you have to tweak it by loosening some of the timings or increasing the voltage a bit.

But that 1600mhz @ cas 8 and 1.410v is pretty much guaranteed with these sticks and won't need much tweaking to achive. So you don't need to worry if you don't know to want to overclock them.
