I'll be sending in my 2x2 of Tracer Red sometime next week. Of my last three builds (myself and other people), all three were crippled or unstable due to bad Ballistix. At least the last set I'll ever buy was the special red one

I said near future in my last post but I didn't think it would be this near...

One of my ballistix Modules has just died!

So I have 4GB of G.Skill PC2-8500 on the way

Got a set of the double-sided PC26400 Ballistix and they are great. I have them running at 1066 with no problem. Just had to OC the NB on this board.

I just purchased my new build and its been 5 years since playing with this stuff (my last computer has been overused and abused it was time for new).

I got an E8400 Processor with Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L motherboard and crucial ballistix 4GB 6400 kit. That puts my processor running at 1066 stock speeds and my memory at 800. Can my memory be oc to 1066 to match my processor and kept stable and cool with stock cooling from a thermaltake soprano case?

If so what timings am i looking at for the overclock? I appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.

First check to see which version Ballistix you have. Is it 2.0v or 2.2v? Does the model # end with .8FE5 or .16FD5? The model number starts with BL

If you have the 2.2v .16FD5 with double-sided chips you are cool. If you have the 2.2v or 2.0v .8FE5 you should be very careful. The 2.2v .8FE5 have been know to be crap at stock settings. Prbly wanna try running them at 2.1v. The 2.0v are a revision of the 2.2v .8FE5 so I don't exspect them to be any better at OCing. I just hope they don't die at stock timings.

Most likely if you just purchased them they are the single-sided crap. Though, you may have gotten lucky and got some old stock.
