    looking at the barebones overclock i5 system and was wondering if i wanted 8gb of memeory instead of the 4gb would i be able to install it myself or would the OC be able to do it and achieve the same overclock?
    Thanks

    This isn't from personal experience but I've heard that 8GB configs can limit the maximum overclock slightly. However if you call the OCuk team they will still be able add the extra memory to your build and they should tell you what the overclock will be with 8GB.

    I think that will be your best bet, as normally more ram does decrease your overclock slightly.
