I have 2x2GB Crucial ballistiX which is 1333mhz, 7-7-7-24, 1.65V. Could you guys help me to overclock them to somewhere about 1600mhz. What would the timings be then, and the volt stays the same yes?

Just pulled the trigger on new Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 12GB (3 x 4GB). Breathing some life into my x56 chipset system. Excited about the blue lighting option.

hey everyone

wondering if anyone has any bad experience with the crucial ballistix sport models. Im running 16GB of DDR3-1333, win7 home premium 64bit, Asrock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 motherboard, intel 2550k. I recently only had 8GB, but upgraded to 16GB. Had a problem with the computer crashing, BSOD every so often. Most of the codes were similar, BcCode 19 is the most common with a string of BAD_POOL_HEADER. I know this isnt the place for BSOD diag, but running memtest determined that I had a bad stick of ram (failed every test). Thats when I replaced that bad stick and upgraded to 16GB. Tonight, it crashed again, same code, same string. Memtest so far hasnt shown any errors yet, but im also running it with all 4 sticks in (i will have to go back and redo them individually). Timings are set as indicated on the stick itself, stock voltage 1.5v. The CPU is overclocked @ 4.5Ghz.

Sorry for the long post, but I was wondering if anyone has had any issues with this model of memory, and what they did to resolve the issue (or did they have to get a different type all together). Thanks in advance!

Can you try with another RAM? or test the RAM in another rig?

Try the settings of the 1600MHz model, 8-8-8-21-1T at 1.65V.

I have the same ram in a different computer, and that one works fine. Maybe I'll try to replace the ram and the motherboard (since I bought the replacement plan for the board). That should rule out the memory and the motherboard I guess

Here is a cheap $29 (newegg shellshocker) kit I bought. They come stock @1866 9-9-9-24 but clock great at 1.66v.
2400@9-11-10-26 1.66v. Not bad for a cheap set of ram.

Just an update: turns out it probably isn't my RAM. Doing a little more research and google searching, I found that Asrock boards with the etron usb 3.0 controller have some serious random issues because of the Etron chip. Found out I had outdated drivers for it (which aren't updated on the asrock website!). Installed the newest recommended drivers and everything seems good for now! Guess the one bad stick I had was just coincidence. But ~$70 for 16GB, I'm very happy with this RAM! Just very glad to know that it wasn't the problem

making a new i5 3570k build computer.

Going for the cheapest 2 sticks of 2gb CL9 1.5v ram i can find, with overclocking being a preference if price warrants it (ie sticks of same price or little more for way more kind of thing).

Of any site or store, the Crucial Tactical Tracers at newegg are the cheapest ram to find anywhere:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148512

Unfortunately, the single 2gb sticks (of which I'd buy 2) is out of stock, might have to buy their 2x2gb kit instead:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148516

Being $2 cheaper than no-name valuram and $6 cheaper than the cheapest name brand ram.... looks like egg has them on a really good sale.

My question to all of you guys - is this decent ram? I mean as I understand it, ram doesnt mean anything really as long as you got enough, just get 1.5v cl9 ram and good to go.... but just curious if this was decent ram, like if it was high quality or what, or if maybe better ram to be had or anything. I dont really see what i could do with it. Like what expectation of overclocking could i have with this ram, what's the max 24/7 voltage (i mean ram is so cheap, i dont care if i blow out the ram btw...)...

Thanks. based on the responses ill be buying something asap.

ps - what's better, 1866mhz CL9 1.5v or 1600mhz CL8 1.5v. Isn't that exact same ram that the manufacturer just labels different, like its the same load and such? like isn't 1333mhz CL9 1.5v X series of ram the same thing and same ics and all as 1600mhz CL9 1.65v ram? like no one would be impressed if intel sold 'the new i5' as 4.4ghz 1.3v when its just the same as an sb/ib or whatever. bad analogy...
