So i was reading the thread about the RAM prices dropping & looked up my current ram.

http://www.overclock.net/hardware-ne...ce-drop-4.html

I was surprised by all the negative reviews. Have any of you had problems like the newegg reviews describe?

The newer 2.0v single sided sticks are crap. Just don't try to OC them and you should be ok.

Count me in.

Ballistix Tracer
4x1GB
DDR2 800 PC2 6400
4-4-4-12
2.0V

I originally purchased the 2.2V and one of the pairs went out after about a year. I RMA'd and they sent me back 4 closely related 2.0V sticks. And they've been truckin it ever since. Unfortunately, I believe one of the channels on my board recently went out.
