I also read that the only difference is that the higher rated ram just get tighter timings than the lower binned ram, but that they all tend to reach the same speeds.
Is this true? Would appreciate answers from people who've used the D9's
Info on any D9 sticks as well
I don't think anyone paid attention to the real question (so far that is).
I have a set of Crucial 667 D9s and a set of Crucial 800 D9s. To answer your specific question, No the 667s will not overclock as high as the 800s.
My 667s will go up to about 900 on 2.2V (they won't go any higher even with more voltage).
My 800s will go up to 1066 on only 2.1V. They would go much higher if this motherboard would let me set them to 2.2V.
So the assumption that you read about D9s is incorrect as far as my testing goes. You cannot overclock the 667s as high as the 800s. I am quite sure they are much different chips.
