Crucial Ballistix Tracer

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am thinking of getting 4 ballistix tracers for the dfi sli-dr expert board im getting. does the fact that i have to run it at 2t make it so that there will be a huge performance hit as opposed to getting 2gb kit gskill hzs? Also, does 2t have a huge impact on overclocking?

DFI boards can handle four modules in 1T. However its very hard on the AMD memory controller. You are better just getting two sticks.

2t is more stable at higher speeds, i think its about a 3% performance hit if i remember right
