I haven't had a chance to read this review but i've heard in numerous places that people have actually had worse luck OC'ing with the Cosair PC2400 than with plain ol' Crucual 2100.

Don't forget that if you use registered RAM, you will actually slow your system down a bit.

I copied a piece from the Mushkin web site.
It reads in part:
"Some of you may be thinking that Registered memory is a solution to this possible performance inhibitor, but it isn't. While Registered Memory will not significantly load the bus capacitatively because Registered Memory represents a smaller load on the memory bus, Registered Memory incurs an extra clock delay in your memory cycle. This makes CAS 2 registered memory perform like CAS 3 memory!. Registered memory should only be used if you need to install the maximum amount of memory possible. Many motherboard chipsets only allow a total of 384MB (or 128MB modules) of unregistered memory while allowing 1GB (256MB modules of registered memory) although each motherboard chipset varies as to the total and maximum module size it will allow."
This is a very good article explaining the ins and outs of RAM performance and most inportantly for folks trying to figure out what RAM to buy.
I would advise you to take a look at the entire article at:
