I would agree with that. The same set of ballistix did not do as well in a P35 blood iron. Around the 1000's was the max they would be pushed and it required at least 2.5vdimm. I'm only giving ~1.4 to the X38 northbridge and 2.2vdimm to get 4 sticks of 6400's close to 1200MHz.

I can only say my DDR667 Ballistix went up to 940MHz, but I'm on AM2 and AMD chips don't like high memory speed. It has been reported that the DDR667 Ballistix went a bit over DDR2-1000 on Intel platform, but I dunno more details.

EDIT My chips are D9-GMH

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.
I have seen the 667's hit 1100 before. so it very well is possible for them to overclock just as high as the 800's. from what I remember it's all the same chip anyway and overclocking is never a promise just a hope and luck. I'm sure there are even some 800mhz sticks that can't overclock that high and I know I have seen some 1066mhz sticks that can't even do there stock rated speed.
