Memory speeds vs. Performance

I was just wondering what the difference in performance of two gigs of pc 4200 cl4,, vs. pc 5300 cl5 .. I have matched pairs of both and am putting together a new machine with another asus p5n32 sli premium and just wondered which memory would be better to use if overclocking is in the picture or just from a basic performance standpoint. I know the 5300 sould be quicker but due to the cl5 vs. the cl4 would maybe the cl4 perform as well or better or be more stable as it is a little better quality mem. It will be core 2 duo e6600 and sli EVGA 7600 GT OC's with raid0 sata II drives. Or is there any real way to tell until trying to run them and just see which actually performs better. I was under the assumption the cl4 was a better choice but at a slower speed is that still the case? Thanks for any advice or help on the issue Jeff Hyder.

Honestly, it depends on what IC's you can find on those sticks, adn the SPD programming, that will dictate what's faster, once you factor in cpu-speed.
