I am glad i got the PC2 8500 sticks because I know my chips are hand picked and tested to run at 1066Mhz and will also happily do 4-4-4-12 at that speed.

Thanks I'll give it a shot. I have a 120mm fan blowing at my Ram Sticks lol I should be okay for cooling.

I'll test it out and see what happens.

EDIT: Well damn I guess I am stuck with 1066 5-5-5-15 timings lol.

Okay. If you wanted to bump the voltage on your RAM, you could probably safely do as high as 2.25v. This might help you close your timings a little, but I naturally accept no responsibility for whatever happens. I WILL say, however, that I've taken the 8500s up to 2.3v with no issues. There is a lifetime warranty on these sticks, and there's no way for them to see if you've overvolted them (and there's always BestBuy with their no-questions return policy for while you're RMA'ing).

Keep em cool and you should be fine at 2.3 but i take no responsability for what happens.

It looks like your memory chips will not do 4-4-4-12 at that speed.

Nope they won't lol. Tried 2.3v and still nothing lol. Well I still love my Ballistix

1066 5-5-5-15 isn't all that bad either

Maybe I'll try 800 3-3-3-9 lol.

We have similar systems (quad + P5N32-E + PC2-8500 Ballistix), so take a look at some of my notes below. In all cases, I use tRC = tRAS + CAS + 2. Keep in mind, all of my tests are at 4x1GB, so your benches should probably be a bit better.

**EDIT: Looking at my notes, I see that I HAVE tested at 800. It was a long time ago (list runs chronologically from June of this year), and you can see my results were bad, so I probably decided never to revisit those dark days.
Thanks, I'll give it a try

4GB 800 at 3-3-3-10 2T has been much faster than 2GB at 1066Mhz 4-4-4-12 for me.

I am at work now, but as soon as I get home I am gonna try 800 at 3-3-3-10 or 3-3-3-9. Now what voltage should I set them at?

Dostoyevsky77,

Forgive me if I am wrong but I don't believe the Intel Northbridge on my motherboard supports a 1T command rate. I thought only the 680i based boards support command rate.

Am I wrong here? If there is a way for me to toggle to 1T then I would be very interested in going after an extreamly low latency setting but I feared I was stuck with 2T.

Updated the list once again, itll be up later.

SPEAK UP IF YOU THINK YOU CAN PULL THE HIGHEST MB/S IN SISOFT SANDRA LITE MEMORY BANDWIDTH BENCHMARK. I need atleast 10 people at the minimum to do a top 5 highest bandwidth chart, or 15-20 to do a top 10. So if you wanna OC and run memtest to check stability and post up your results to be entered, then please do so so i can start it
Meh.
