it is a general purpose ram. however more importantly- is it built with desirable chips(very overclockable) and is it quality? the ans to the first depends on what chips they use. for ex. if they have the micron/hynix chips they will overclock real well. also there is some valuran that is rated 2.5 and that to the best of my knowledge is ch5.the answer to the second is yes. valuram is of hi quality. so to sum up, u need to test it out and see how it does. if it run 250+ at 3-4-4-8 its probably bt-d43 hynix chips ot maybe a good rev of the samsung. if it runs like 230/240+ at 3-2-3-5 it is probably the micron -5b c chips used in the ocz eb series.if it costed a little more and is cl2.5 its probably ch5 chips which can run 2-2-2-5 at 200+,especially with 3.2volts.. if it doesnt run well overclocked ,then it is probably some promos infineon etc that isnt known for overclocking
