I got a 2GB kit of single-sided Tracers running with a 2GB kit of Geil Black Dragons right now. By luck of the draw, both kits use the EXACT same spec--4-4-4-12, DDR2-800, 2.0v. RAM's overclocked right now to 850MHz, but on 5-6-6-20 timings for stability on 2.0v. I'm not sure if I want to tighten the timings a bit seeing that it's mixed pairs and it's 4GB...

4 sticks of ram is a good bit of stress on your NB. I would bump the NB voltage a good bit, get the sticks stable with what ever voltage/timing you feel safe and later try bringing the NB back down.

price vs performance they are not better any more i have a set that is 2gb(2x1gb)kit pc2 6400 they will push 1200mhz. but the new single sided 2gb modules suck. i would stick with ocz first then then maybe corsair. that is just my opinion.

Right now I have the vNB set at +0.1v, bringing it to 1.35v. I might bump it up to 1.45v and start tightening the timings. Thing is my BIOS will only let my vNB max out at 1.55v. I could install a Blue Ice Pro, though I have my Golden Orb II RIGHT OVER my NB heatsink...

I can't decided which to get. I use my pc mostly gaming. I wonder if 4gb can last me for how long. If able to last till windows 7 official release, i might get 4gb.

2 sets of 2GB kit (1GBx2), Ballistix Tracer 240-pin DIMM (with LEDs), DDR2 PC2-8500 memory module

Warranty will be fine. Freezing doesn't do any physical damage to the sticks.

As far as to how long the sticks that where revived will live. IDK, just depends on the ram in question. I've revived one pair twice, but it's due to the fact that I get bored and try to push benchmarks and give crazy ammounts of voltage to them.
