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.

Hi. I got my 4GB PC28500 Tracers stable at 816 4-4-4-12-2T, 2.25v (5hrs Everest torture test, & counting).

I consider that quite an accomplishment considering the stigma of OCing 4GB on a 680i with a quad in Vista (CPU-Z in my sig).

4x1GB at 3-3-3-6-1T

Only 544, but I wanted to see what 1:1 would do & decided to go as tight as possible. This... is tight! 2.2v
