Considering ballistix stock voltages are 2.2v, i don't think 2.3 can do much harm as long as the chips arent getting that hot.
I'll make some adjustments this evening and see what I can do with the tRc. Honestly, I just left the advanced timings on auto as I am clueless to what the values should (or could be). Any mentoring on setting the advanced timings would be most appriciated.
I agree with the voltage too. Your memory will likely be able to handle it- I ran my old PC2/4200 sticks at 2.375V and they were rated for 1.85V. They are still running strong after 4 years of 24/7 torture. Just watch your chipset/mosfets closely, there have been reports of eVga boards with 650i/680i chipsets fail when vdimm runs over 2.2V- that comes down to the nVidia reference design.
Honestly the Ballistix I have run just warm to the touch with the case open, and I know that I get MUCH better cooling with the case closed. I think there is quite a bit of headroom on the Micron D9 ICs for voltage and bus increases.
