I've been debating on getting a RAM upgrade from 4 gig DDR3 to 8 gigs, especially since DDR3 RAM is currently still fairly low price-wise. The RAM I have now is rated for 1600MHz, and after many weeks of maxing out a system overclock, I still haven't gotten the RAM to operate at 1600MHz. Maybe I'm missing something with it, but whatever.
The RAM I'm looking at is an OCZ kit of 8 gigs rated for 1600MHz, but knowing that I haven't been able to get to that speed, is it worth it to go for that or a kit that is rated at 1333MHz? I know that common overclocking knowledge dictates that RAM should be rated for around 1600 for stable overclocking, but can I get the 1333MHz kit and overclock it to where the system is stable or stick with the 1600 kit?
