more voltage...less crash.

I can run stock timings at 1066mhz on 2.15v ...but adjusting timings needs 2.25v or more to remain stable.

*Just tested today: 900mhz 4-4-4-12-4-35-9-9-10-10 @ 2.25v
Read- 7932mbs
Write- 2560mbs
Latency- 65.1ns

this timing set actually had higher bandwidth throughput than 4-4-3-11-30-9-9-9-9...

Type of Crucial Ballistix : PC2- 6400
Running Frequency: 667Mhz
Timings: 4-4-4-12 - 2T
Voltage: High in what the BIOS says.
Memory Size: 2GB as 2 * 1GB.

When I get a new motherboard (Either a DS3 or a DFi Blood Iron) I'll muck around with the memory, and its 667Mhz cuz that's as fast as this board goes.

So I am the proud new owner of 4Gb (4x1)Tracers due to the amazing $39.99 deal from Newegg. I have a quick question however.. I've read these sticks tend to run a little hot. I'm not sure at what speed they'll be running yet, (probably very little over 800MHz) do I need to worry about getting some fans on these puppies?

Capacity 4GB (4 x 1GB)
Speed DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Cas Latency 4
Timing 4-4-4-12
Voltage 2.2V

Extra cooling can never hurt. I have a 120mm fan cooling mine. These sticks can as you may already have seen do some crazy speeds and low timings. I am having great luck over clocking my sticks. The thing is with 4 1Gb sticks it is harder to get higher Mhz and lower timings. When you buy high performance ram in 1Gbx2 kits they come in "Matched" pairs. That normally means they will run together better then a random 2 sticks would. You have 2 matched kits but, the kits are not matched to one another. Hope that help a little.

Well ballistix have a 2.2v stock voltage so they like their power and are deigned to take it 24/7. Just test them yourself by running some hungry app for a wile then touching th modules and seeing if they are hot or warm.

Mine used to get ever so slightly warm but I now under volt em at 2.1v and they dont even heat up.
