Ballistix keep dying, recommend me new RAM!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Just like the title says, recommend me some new RAM!

I'm looking at some Team Xtreem RAM, 800 MHz, 4-4-4-10, 2.0v. Does anyone have experience with this RAM?

No I haven't personally. I thought I heard something about some/most of them having D9 chips... regardless they look like pretty good RAM. Sry You've been having such bum luck w/ the Ballistix, I love mine

don't get me wrong, I love my Ballistix, if they were women (especially if they were twins.....dual channel FTW) I'd marry 'em. The thing is.....I've had two sets die and cause severe problems, both times I almost payed to RMA different parts which would increase my downtime and/or confusion.

hmmm... so do you want an interum set that will resell ok or do you want to replace, RMA and sell the ballistix?

Here they are

I want a new set to use so I can sell my Ballistix NIB once they get back from RMA.

For more money ($120 I believe) You can get a set of Xtreem that does 2.0v 3-3-3-8 at 800 MHz....some pretty unbelievable specs if you ask me.

Stick w/ the linked ones... if you can get that rebate back that's a PHENOMENAL DEAL! and in the good way, not the crappy pre-B3 way

Yea, I here it's good stuff from the people that have it.

In fact, I'd like to be running some hardware that beats the "best" while not a lot of people know about it.
