  1. Hey, so im in the market to upgrade my ram. I have a 680i mobo, and am currently running 2 gigs of OCZ at 5-4-4-12-2t 960, and to me they are just seeming to give out. I'm almost clueless when it comes to ram so help me out a little =], when i bought mine i just picked at random almost, then i started researching and overclocked them. I didn't know what 2t meant when i bought it, but now i know that i'll probably want 1t.

    I've been looking at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145194

    and
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231122

    I am planning to overclock, but i'm not sure what will overclock better/worse.
