I've seen a couple gskill PSC kits that were tested stably at 7-10-7-27 1t 2200MHz (1.65v)

these Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model F3-16000CL9D-4GBRM (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231419)

and these: Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL6D-4GBXH (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231444)

bench results for first:

bench results for the second: $79.99 G.Skill F3-12800CL6D-4GBXH (2x2GB) 1.5v @ DDR3 2133 CL7! (http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?266839-79.99-G.Skill-F3-12800CL6D-4GBXH-(2x2GB)-1.5v-DDR3-2133-CL7!<br /><br />M)

My primary question is are there any better kits then these that are less than 100?
My secondary question is... i know certain ic like elpida bbse preform similarly throughout... ex.. if you buy a kit that has 9-9-9-27 [email protected] 2000MHz with elpida bbse they clock/overclock around the same throughout a large batch. (so if i buy two kits and test them both they'll clock around the same)

These use PSC XFG IC though and i was wondering if they are all pretty similar clockers or did these guys get golden kits?
