Odd. My old ballistix would do 5-5-5-15, 1000Mhz on 2.10V memtest stable...

Could be the mem controller on that board possibly.
Meh.

I'll give it a shot. How well do the Ballistix run on the Blood Iron because I am seriously considering a new motherboard for the new year.

You shouldn't ne having any problems with them hitting 1000Mhz. The EPP on them is set for 1000Mhz, with those 5-5-5-15-30 timmings. with 2.2vdimm, might be your NB, up it's voltage a tad.

I didn't think I should be having these problems because of the EPP but some times my system wont even boot when I have them set to 1000Mhz. My NB voltage is already 1.5v. I am thinking it is my board. I am planning on ordering a Blood Iron this weekend.

Oh and Merry Christmas to all.

Some boards are funny with high frequency ram....

I could do 1066Mhz 4-4-4-12 @ 2.2v easy... I didn't try tighter.

Hey add me to the club! I have 4GB of Ballistix Tracer DDR2 8500.

Also, how would I go about having these clocked at 1066MHz with 4-4-4-12 timings if they are burning up all the time? I have 4 sticks of 1GB with a 32CFM fan blowing on them, but I guess it just isn't enough. What do I do?

Hey, I got AU$140 for Christmas, and I am looking for some new RAM, anyway, searching eBay Australia, I found this, anyway, I was wondering is that worth it, and does that look legit, and I know my motherboard will only go up to DDR677 or w/e, but I plan on just using this Mobo as a stepping stone to get a newer GfX card and Ram

Go for it. You can do a bit of OC'ing on your board maybe to make it run at 800Mhz?
