Same with me. My tracers were quite a bit cheaper than standard sticks, which doesn't make any sense.

so the new ballistix tracers and regular ballistix are on the same boat? the new ones are single sided and the old ones are double side?
and the double sided ones are better while the single sided have a higher failure rate<--- does this only apply to regular ballistix or both?

Regular and tracers, in terms of the chips and PCB, are exactly the same.

The main reason double sided are preferred is that they oc further.

just thought i'd bring this thread back alive as to not have to post a new one for the same question/suggestions. I currently have 4x1gb Crucial Ballistix (2 are Tracers with Led's) now after doing some research on there website they reccomend 4-4-4-12 @ 2.2v now I know I usually see another number in the ram timing such as 4-4-4-12-"24"(Trc#) now if I were to use this timing, what do you guys think...Is this a good timing? Would 2.2v be safe on my current build? My current timings are 5-5-5-18-23

timings will vary from chipset types as well.. even with the same stick of RAM, you will not get the same exact timings with it in a different mobo.

I would try for some cas3 800, as the latency on the new X48's is pretty loose. CAS3 will help to keep the PL# down, I believe [which is a key factor to latency]. From the tests I have done with my mobo so far, there has not been much difference between 800mhz CAS4 and 900+mhz CAS5.. at least in the 266 strap. I have not had much time to dwell into latency in the other mem straps yet.

you guys are offtopic lol, hes looking at 2x2gb kits, not the 2x1gb kits, the 2x2gb kits are all double sided lol

Yeah 1T or 2T.Intel generally uses 2T,just so ya no.

can anyonetell me if the timings i've listed above (4-4-4-12-24 @2.2v) would be an improvement over the stock (5-5-5-18-23 @ 1.8v)...

^^ generally, CAS4 will have less latency than CAS5.. so Yes. 4-4-4-12-24 would be a good improvement, assuming you were staying with the same speed.

You can lower the latency of the RAM, further by adjusting the PL# and/or adjusting the mem straps as well.
