y almost anything with micron d9 chips in it. 1:1 that's only DDR2-880 and can be done 4-3-3/3-4-3 with 2.3-2.4V depending on the kit.

atleast thats what all my RAM is able to do.

The Ballistix are good overclockers, and many people report being able to get to DDR2-1200 or higher on 2.2-2.3v. However, even at these voltages the sticks seem to have a high burnout rate. They are also shipping single sided sticks, which dont overclock as well. If G.skill has DDR2-1066, that might be good to use. Otherwise, the DDR2-800 from G.skill overclocks very well also.
for the most part you won't be getting much mroe out of higher binned RAM, the diference is comparable to x6850 vs. 6600, the clock difference just isn't THAT high.

My issues are temps, not memory bottleneck.

I can post at 3.91 and do a benchmark in 3Dmark06, but it's nowhere near stable, and I don't even want to think about temps -- they're prolly rediculously high, let alone my vcore is too high at 3.91 Ghz

However, if you can't get stability using the 9x multi, dropping to an 8x multi will make your memory run faster, as the FSB will increase; in which case, you'll definitely need some 1000+mhz ram
last WR for 3dm06 I checked the RAM was running synchronous to the bus with a trd 5 of 5 at 420ish FSB.
