Default Need a solid Over Clocking Ram

Well I got my builds done for those who followed the work log....I have now reached the FSB limit my Corsair Ram will handle which isn't very much above stock but oh well I have been delaying Ram purchasing for exactly this reason..So I am looking for a 4GB 2-2 Kit and I know Mushkin Redlines are great I have been thinking about getting them for awhile...but I would like PC8500 just for kicks and Lotsa OC room infact overkill....

So anyone have any personal testimonies to share about the awesome ram they think I should get....

Sky..Charlie...Wilson...Vortex...Miggs....Firebane ... and so on ...anybody I want the best DDR2 I can get for max OC....

Either of the Muskin kits, I have the redline ascents and have got them to 1100 5-5-5-15 granted I have only had them for about a week and haven't had enough time to fine tune them.

+3 for the PC2 8500 ascents. Mine run 1113 at low(ish) volts without any real work involved in getting them there. (Plus they look pretty cool!!! :) ).

I like the PI series personally, people have posted some very nice ocs with the 8800pi.
