OCZ EL 3200: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=20-146-883&depa=0 ( ch-5)

KINGSTON twinx 3500 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=20-144-141&depa=0 ( ak2 in model number, does that mean for sure its ch5 @ 3500? why is cas at 2.5 then?

KINGSTON twinx 3200 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=20-144-114&depa=0 ( ak2 model numb, proper cas latency 2 3 2 6 1t its ch-5

or corsair, what Corsair can i buy from newegg that has the best overclocking potential for nf7.. ch5 or bh6?

hoping for 230+, mushkin got into windows at 230 without v12 mod, it was never stable tho at any speed so i know my mobo can take 230 stock at least....

any help would be wonderful :)

no, that's not bh5, im not sure what chips they use but i know it's not bh5. the only place you will most likely find it is on ebay or in a for sale section. almost impossible to find new.

ya those are supposed to be sweet. what chip are u running? i ahve two nf7 v2 boards and after a couple mods they are running very fast and stable. if you are having stability probs with the new mem at high fsb, i'd really reccomen the l12 mod. itr helped on both my boards. also i did the pencil vdd mod and run my vcore at 2v. i have a zalman cooler on the northbridge and another small heatsink on the south though. my barton ran over 2.5 ghz very stable. i ran it at 240fsb x 10.5.

The OCZ 3500 EB is a wonderful choice. Just remember to run the stuff at CAS 2.5 or even 3 to get your highest speeds, but keep everything else as tight as it goes. BH6 is wonderful for what it's made for, but it is not made to go much further than 210ish, and you can't expect much more than that without over 3v.
