Ballistix incompatible? *UPDATE* - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
I went home on my lunch to do some quick testing and here is what I’ve found:

When using either stick individually I am able to boot into windows with the memory running over 800MHz, something I can’t do with both at the same time.
Stick #1 is definitely the stronger of the two and is now testing at 1000MHz 5-5-5-12 2T @ 2.2v. This looks to be close to it’s limit as anything higher than 1040 caused memtest errors within a minute.
Stick #2 is not even workable at 1000MHz 5-5-5-12 2T @ 2.2v. I haven’t had the time to test any lower yet so I don’t know what it’s limit is but my guess is that it’s far lower than stick #1.

Is stick #2 able to be RMA’d then? I know this is far above stock but it has been brought to my attention in previous posts that an RMA can be processed on a stick that simply doesn’t perform well. (reference posts #2-#5)What is the definition of “well” I suppose?

ZZZ at people blaming Single Sided Ballistixs...

Have absolutely nothing to do with anything

The guy cant even run them at stock ..

I just ordered 2x2gb Ballistix and ill post on how they go.

Id just say ure Motherboard is the problem ( Incompatibility most likely and the sticks arnt bad. They just dont like ure board )

P965 chip oldschool

Ok so I give up with these. I am gonna scrap them on Ebay and stick with my XMS2, they can do what these Ballistix can't; 1066 5-5-5-12 2T @ 2.125v. I'm glad I got the Ballistix cheap with a rebate or I would have really been mad to have paid $70 for crap. Anyways, sorry for the rant but thanks to all those who helped me out with valuable input. I appreciate the effort.
