    Hi, I'm about to invest in a new Intel Core 2 DUO E6700 system. I'm torn between 2 different memory sets. I plan to overclock as much as possible, I've heard that the timings make little performance difference on Intel Core Duo setups so the major difference is voltage (2.1 opposed to 2.3). Will this significantly affect overclocking potential? ALSO, which RAM is more stable?

    thanks in advance!
