    I have bought a pair of 256 Nanya crappy pc3200 ram, but i have come to the conclusion that they suck majorly when it comes to overclocking since the max bandwith is 200mhz.

    The absolute max OC is 5 to 10% i can get from my p4p800.

    So my question was, what's the best type of RAM when it comes to overclocking.

    Money is not a problem for me.

    Just a few quality brands of RAM off the top of my head:
    Corsair, Geil, OCZ, Crucial.

    Are you using the AI Overclock Tuner? If you use the manual settings you can change the speed of the RAM to keep it at a minimum while you raise the FSB. Set it to 320.

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]
    Ti4400 - 3DMark2001 [16,028]

    Well if u consider in oc, there are some other choices, kingston specially the honorable hyperx series, kingmax,geil dragon series,crucial,geil,ozc,corsair,twinmos,transcent, magicpro,A-data.
    actually there is more, just cant remember them all.
    In fact nanya ram isnt that bad, compare to other oem non-major brand manufacture it works pretty good(well, i mean not to oc) so if u r not those kind of hardcore quality people, just stay with ur ram now. well if not i suggest u go try kingston's hyperx(currently using it) i can easily set it to pc 4000 without those extreame cooling system, good luck.

    ahhhh, you are forgiven ;)

    PC 2700 = 166MHz
    PC 3200 = 200MHz
    PC 3500 = 217MHz
    PC 3700 = 233MHz
    PC 4000 = 250MHz
