I've been playing with my new 2.0v single sided today and I can tell a big differance from the 2.2v. Already, they are very responsive. After about 45 of clocking I've ended with my PC2 6400 Tracers running 1000Mhz at 5-4-4-12 and 1.9v. Haven't had the first error in memtest yet. The 2.2v where bad about giving errors with minimal OCing.

I'll check back after I've ran them a little longer.

Knowing the history of the single-sided ballistix. I would keep 2.0v or below. I'm very happy with the results I'm getting with mine at 1000Mhz @ 5-4-4-12 with 1.9v. My 680i just doesn't like going above 1000Mhz. I played with these in a 750i board and was also able to push to 1150, but I ran them at 6-6-6-20 with 2.0v.

Hi guys hopefully ive come to the right place, is it possible to o/c the ram without doing the cpu, as ive had a go and it keeps halting at boot up on msi window

have tried

5-5-5-15

1:1:5 +1000

2.0v + 2.2 neither worked.

currently at

5-5-5-15

1:1:25= 833

2.0

i have 4 gigs installed, does this make a difference

any help greatfully received.

Yes, you should be able to OC just ram, but you will get a much larger performance boost OCing CPU. Most OC their CPU first then OC ram after they have a stable CPU clock.

4 1GB sticks or 2 2GB sticks?

Which version do you have? Can you post a pick of the SPD tab in CPU-z?

BTW, I decided to have some fun with a pair of double-sided DDR2 800's

Very nice linked OC, but I can get faster memory bandwidth out of the new single sided.

Bad news. You've got the 2.2v single-sided version. This version is crap. They die at stock settings and turn to crap if you try to OC them. I've been through three pars

I would contact Crucial for a RMA. They will replace them with the new 2.0v version. Which are much better.
