RAM OC'ing doesn't go very far unless you opt for none generic IC's, most of this cheap RAM all come from the same generic stock pile.
Just get the 8GB, run them at 1600MHZ and that's it.

Thanks for the reply, 8GB for £29.99 with a lifetime warranty seems like a no brainer.

Your first link is to triple channel RAM. You need dual channel for AM3, although it'd work it won't run in triple channel mode. As above, that Kingston Grey 2x4GB is a bargain.

If you fancy doing some overclocking on your RAM, have a look at this from Samsung, supposed to be very good.

Isn't 16GB a bit excessive? :)

Maybe :p

I'd forgotten all about that RAM. I'd love to get 16GB of it :p

Although OP's on a Phenom II, not exactly the best of IMC's, it wasn't until Thuban that AMD IMC's were capable of doing 1600MHZ as the norm, even C3 wouldn't do it as the norm.
