Have to say Corsair Value select has been pretty good for me as far as 
overclocking goes.  They make tons of overclocking types of RAM for tons 
of money, but the value select RAM itself is great, but make sure to get 
the cas2.5 kind (they also have cas3 value select for the same price 
most places).
I wasn't expecting to be able to overclock with "value" memory; take it 
with a grain of salt though, because maybe I just got lucky.
