Umm, kever heard of Ultra, and I'm prety sure that unless it's made with TCCD, it won't overclock that high for PC3200 RAM. It's pretty cheap too, so I wouldn't trust it. But then again, that's me.

IMO, if you want to overclock, get DDR433-DDR-500 RAM. If you want, you can look at AnandTech's comparison of three different 2x1GB sets here:

Agreed. As soon as I earn the money, I'm going to get the PC4000 DDR500 OCZ Platinum 2x1GB kit. :P Good stuff.
