If I remember correctly, the Ballistix have Micron D9 chips in them. I'd go for those.

I'd get the Crucial RAM as well, nothing wrong with Corsair, just happen to have owned some of each, and had a better experience with Crucial.

Ballistixs will win.

Last time I've heard, the Ballistixs can do 1100MHz. My friend's XMS2 couldn't even pass 937MHz. D:

Any links to support the idea that the Ballistix are running D9's ?

My first Crucial set ran great but died after 3wks. Great RMA policy and customer service, replaced them no questions asked. Got a brand new set 1 week later and they run @1000 5 5 5 15 2.2v no probs at all.
