Well... I did pay $150 for 4X4GB Mushkin Redline 2400Mhz RAM
Why do you find it easier to get HIGH OC's when NOT using the fastest ram out there? Some sort of 'strapping' conflict???
Its easier on the IMC of the Chip when running slower RAM speeds and not populating all RAM Slots, generally easier to reach higher CPU speeds. Takes more tweaking is all with no guarentees.....personally I'd much rather have a system with higher CPU speeds and lower RAM speeds.
