    Which one of these would give me the best oc and the highest preformance?

    Corsair TWINX512-3200LLPT
    TWINX512-3700PT
    TWINX512-4000PT

    Suggest the PC3200 out of those for tighter timings at lower FSB. Should be good for CAS 2 till at least 205fsb probably higher.:)

    Depends on how long you plan on sticking with your current motherboard. While it is certainly still functional, it will keep you from getting the best performance that you can. If you plan on keeping the 8KHA+ for a while, then yes, the PC3200 will suit your needs just fine. If you have any plans on upgrading soon, then you'll want to look at the higher rated modules to allow yourself the most headroom for future overclocking.

    Then go for the PC4000 if you can afford it. Even if you can't max out the memory speeds, you'll have a greater chance of success when using more aggressive memory timings when overclocking. :D

    I'll respectfully disagree on this point. Since the highest FSB you can realistically hope for on an NF7-S is 240 (lotsa luck but it can be done sometimes) I'd recommend OCZ PC3500EL. If you do the VDIMM voltmod it will do 233fsb or higher (DDR466) at 6-2-2-2 timings. Unfortunately all the PC4000 and PC3700 modules that I know of are locked at CAS 3 or maybe 2.5 None do CAS 2 at lower speeds that I know of. CAS 2 makes a significant difference on AMD rigs.:)

    There are two threads going on regarding this topic and I corrected myself in the other one regarding the lack of research on my part. After looking at the memory in question, I saw that the timings were terrible and made a different recommendation (of PC3500 modules if I recall).

    Ok, couple of things. A: Dont I wouldnt go near OCZ, they have a terrible reputation (everywhere) of giving great products for reviews and then giving out s*** to customers, its sickening. B: I'd say go with the 3200PTLL, as its made for dual channel, where 3500 isnt. Both of the corsair 3700 and 4000 are manufacturered to be used in Intel based systems where a high FSB is the main goal. They have timings of 3-4-4-8, not too good, and they arent recommended for running in lower timings. However, 3200LLPT is. When you get your new mobo put your FSB up to 200 and take down you multi a bit (say 11x). The 3200LL has really low timings and runs stock at 200FSB, so it wont heat up at all. In 1:1 sync you should get awesome performance. Good luck, : peace2: Mista K6

    I've had very good luck with running my Corsair 3200c modules at low latency timings 2,2,2,5 so that's a pretty good indication of the quality of those chips. I'm also running it at 400MHz. I did reach 410MHz stable but didn't get any significant performance increase. In the end for day to day use I like nice round numbers, :D so I went back to 400MHz.

    I bought those before Corsair came out with the "LL" line.
