At the JEDEC settings of DDR2-800 at CL5 the 4GB Ballistix Red kit isn't much more than a pretty red-head in your case. It has some extra value at CL4, and even more value at the impressive DDR2-1000 at CL5. At this speed it is one of the faster 4GB DDR2 kits around and while it isn't the fastest it is pretty darn impressive nevertheless. What makes this kit a must have is the fact that it can overclock well over 1100Mhz making it one of the fastest 4GB DDR2 kits around. We managed to get it rock solid at 1143MHz and it ran wicked fast and flawless throughout testing. The red motif is a nice change and if you've got a Zalman Fatal1ty case, this will look awesome inside.

Overall, I'm very happy to recommend this 4GB to anyone who wants a high-performance kit and wants some added flash to their PC. This is a great kit that overclocks well and has a lot more to offer than a mere DDR2-800. It breaks down to PC2-9140 and that's not bad for a PC2-6400 kit.
