The NF7-S would be a great board to overclock with. The only one that might beat it would be the DFI LANparty, which is quite overpriced.

I'm sure that RAM would work fine, but I'm not a fan of paying overhead for a twin pack when you could buy two separate sticks and have them work in dual channel mode just fine.

Works great for me. They should reach any frequency an nforce2 can handle.

I have some Corsair XMS Value RAM (DDR400) and it has been great for overclocking with.

Well there is one advantage to getting a twin pack...and that's making sure the RAM is exactly the same... Corsair of course doesn't make the memory chips themselves...

Depending on the chips used, it is possible to get the same memory module capacity with the module being single sided or double. I've also bought memory from them before (this was my PC100 though) and had one module have all Samsung chips on them, and the other from another chip maker...

Sometimes you can get better latencies with the twin packs ;)
