Well, I just installed the ballistix tracer but am very dissapointed. I have 4X1gb installed to replace my OCZ Reapers PC26400. Here's my benchies from SiSoft Sandra:

Ballistix Tracers PC2 8500
3-3-3-10 2T @667mhz 2.2v
INT-6781
FLT-6820
Will not POST at 800mhz with these timings

4-4-4-15 2T @860MHZ 2.2v
int-6560
flt-6547

5-5-5-15 2t @900mhz 2.2v
int-6798
flt-6786

5-5-5-15 2t @800mhz 2.2v
int-6798
flt-6786

all settings with NB 1.45

OCZ Reapers 2X2gb PC2 6400(non D9 chips, i think)
4-4-4-12 2T @822 2.1v
int-6645
flt-6643

4-4-4-12 1T (yes 1T) 2.2v
int-7044
flt-7028
NB @1.40

So, am I doing something wrong here or do the ballistix seem inferior to the Reapers I just took off. It may have something to do with 2X2gb sticks and 4X1gb sticks. Need some help. As of right now, the Reapers are gonna go back in. A pity cuz the Ballistix Tracers are so pretty. The OZC stuff actually aren't too bad as they can do 4-4-4-12 1T @ 822mhz. If I try to put the Ballistix at that setting I get no POST? Help! I wanna keep the pretty Tracers.

well, after a disgusting fiasco with my Corsair dominators (see my previous post in this thread), I got some sense and bought 4x1GB of Crucial Ballistix Micron D9's PC8500

I love them. Count me in!!

Hey, all. It's been a while, but I had to toss my wonderful P5N32-E to the curb and get a very nice X38 board (had to- long story). Basically, it means I get my Ballistix back from the wife (look up 4x1 on 680i for more). Well, here is a photo (more in my gallery), and some initial benches. Please note that they are not chronological.

It feels so good to have my Ballistix back... (except I wish they could fasten their heatspreaders better! Sending back next week for my fifth RMA).

Crucial Ballistix Tracer is just the Crucial Ballstix with that LED thing right? Otherwise they are identical? They are at the same price on Newegg, well, one is instant saving the other is MIA, but either way should I get the tracer or just regular?

if there the same price get the tracers

Does anyone know of a way to turn off the LEDs? I am trying to keep my case lit up with only blue lights and the red & green LEDs are throwing off my whole scheme! :



BTW... I have 2x1GB sticks of the LanFest sticks and the other 2x1GB sticks with the fancy LEDs... put me on the list!
