High speed DDR2

OCZ's FlexXLC offers a lot to overclockers. The 1150MHz out of the box speed will make sure that it isn't the memory holding back your FSB and 'ready for watercooling' design will give you some great cooling power. PC Stats managed 5-5-5-15 @ 1220 MHz, and there is probably some room left to speed it up.
With DDR2 hitting speeds that high at a high price, and DDR3 hitting even higher speeds and prices, it is worth considering Ryan's article on whether DDR3 is really ready for the enthusiast market.
"OCZ has long been equipping its memory modules with fancy thermal solutions, partly to make them stand out on store
shelves, partially to address heat from overclocking and over-volting. In this review, OCZ brings to the table the
most hardcore form of memory cooling PCSTATS has ever seen commercially available. Watercooling for memory. Yup,
watercooling. OCZ's PC2-9200 FlexXLC Edition DDR2 memory runs in a dual channel configuration with a stock speed
rating of 1150 MHz, on timings of 5-5-5-18. "
