If you are running a 1333Mhz FSB then the max memory bandwidth that could be used is 667Mhz. Even if you clock your ram to 800, it can still only use 667Mhz.

If you are running a 1600Mhz FSB then the max memory bandwidtch that could be used is 800Mhz. Even if you clock the RAM to 1066, it can still only use 800Mhz.

So this means that 1000Mhz or 1066Mhz (and above) memory can't be taken advantage of fully until we see FSB's of 2000 and upwards.

This is why it makes more sense to tighten up the timings which effect the way and speed that the memory deals with each instruction as given by the cpu.
Thats what i always thought, at least as far as syncing a 1:1 ratio goes. It may be different otherwise. First i had a stick of these HKs go from bad to worse, now im only using one, and after awhile of folding at 3.4ghz (1700fsb/850mhz memory) ill get a bluescreen. But running at 3.2ghz (1600fsb/800mhz memory) it does fine. Anything more ill end up getting a bluescreen. Hope these Ballistix fair better.

Nice list guys. I honestly do want a count of all the people on OCN with Ballistix. What you should do is make a database with the overclocks also. Then have it downloadable as an Exel Spreadsheet that would be awsome

Does this ram have a high failure rate?

I have 2GB Crucial Ballistix PC5300 667Mhz, and my first set (Proberbly was my fault I put it to 3-3-3-7 T1 at 850Mhz at 2.2V by accident as I never meant to save it), this was in my P5N-E SLi when this failed, but my second set in my P35C DS3R failed at 850Mhz 5-5-5-15 at 2.2V (Was also in with 1GB Kit (2x 512mb), now my third set of 2GB Ballistix failed at 850Mhz 4-4-4-12 2.2V in my P35C DS3R and this was with 2GB GeIL ram in aswell, I know the GeIL Ultra cant cope with speeds this Ballistix can apparently cope with, but the GeIL ultra which is rated at 800Mhz 4-4-4-12 at 2.1V was happily running at 900Mhz 4-4-4-12 2.2V, so whats with the ballistix?

My PC was on the desktop so I went to watch some max and paddy, got back up, pc was turned off, so I went to restart PC and it just turned on and off, tried again, same thing but stayed on with no monitor, so I decided to take 1GB of Ballistix out and it ran fine, the 1GB Ballistix is back in now but at stock ram speeds with 5-5-5-15 latency and CPU at 2.1Ghz, wont work at overclock anymore, dont know whats up with this ballistix thought it was supposed to be good ram.

That sounds like you are charging your ram with static or have removed / inserted the modules when the motherboard still has power.

I cant of charged them with static, when the PC turned off by itself I was downstairs watching tv, and when I came back up to turn it on the PC would not turn boot, just fan kept spinning on full.

I took the ram out (The PC WAS turned off at the PSU) and then put it back in, all semmed right, I lowered the MCH voltage (What is the MCH? Memory controller??) from 0.2V to 0.1V and also lowered the voltage of the ram down to 0.3V (2.1V) and bumped speeds back to 850Mhz 4-4-4-12 and put Turbo mode back on and I have booted fine.

Sounds like you have a dodgy memory controller on your Motherboard then...

Run memtest for a couple of passes to check for errors.
