Dude they are £5 cheaper than the HZ's......and the HKs are the same price.

I would choose the HK's over the Ballistix and the HZ's over the HK's

For £5 more you can get the HZ's which generally take less voltage to reach a higher OC (means longer life) and they generally push further than the HK's

Which ever you choose you will not be dissapointed. But i would (did) get the HZ's just because they are awesome OC'ers and generally push that little bit further.

I've been hunting for reviews of the PK's, nada.

Did find a review by VR-zone of the HK's which can be found here.
These guys had them running at 510Mhz 4-4-3-5 @ 2.3vdimm. Upon loosening the timings to 5-5-5-15 they jumped straight up to 551Mhz with no further voltage increase. That's sounding pretty sweet to me...

Yea the HK's are very nice modules. They use Promo IC's instead of D9's so don't bank on them getting over 1000mhz (90% will but there is always a chance, like anything i suppose)

For the £5 extra i would get the HZ's just because of the D9's reputation of survival and extreme OC'ing (this isn't from a fanboy point of view) this is from facts and the potential i have seen out of them. If it was a big price leap the HK's would win hands down, but £5 is pennies and worth it for the gaurentee of a great OC

And why is that? I wouldnt choose the HK over either the ballistics or the HZ. The HZ and ballistics will do the same at the same volts and in some cases the ballistics will do better then the HZ's. Niot to start a arguement but really they are the same thing. In my case my ballistics did better then my HZ's and lasted just as long.

I think I might take my chance and go for the PK's, which no one seems to have tested out. So I will test them and post a report

Also, they're bloody cheap
