As for overclocking, I was unable to increase the RAM more than 1 MHz and could only do that at 1.85V. However, my Pentium 4 2.4C appears to be the limiting factor or, at least, significantly affects overclocking past 3.0 GHz. This is why there were no benchmarks at overclocked speeds for the OCZ RAM; I just could not do it.

In terms of performance, the OCZ EL DDR PC-4000 Dual Channel Gold is great. It is definitely the fastest RAM we have tested. It ran rock solid at its advertised speed at its advertised voltage. This OCZ RAM can run at with quick CAS timings at lower bus speeds as well. For those of you worried about people looking through your case window, don't fret. The RAM looks great with its shiny, gold colored heatsinks.

Without searching very hard, I found the 1GB(512MBx2) OCZ Enhanced Latency Dual Channel Gold DDR PC-4000 'kit' for $346.00 from a reputable dealer. This is not a bad price. Especially when you consider that with this OCZ RAM you get what pay for. Overall, I'd highly recommend this RAM for anyone looking to run their RAM at a 1:1 FSB ratio with their CPU while maintaining a significant overclock. If you find you can't overclock your CPU as much as you would like, you can always drop the bus speed and run the RAM at very low timings, which still provides great speed.

OCZ makes great RAM. If you are planning to purchase high performance memory in the near future, definitely consider this dual channel kit.
