Crucial Ballistix Tracer

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Are the "Crucial Ballistix Tracer" sticks of ram better overclockers than the "G.Skill" sticks? I am speaking of DDR2-800.

Yeah, I won't recommend Ballistix to anyone right now because of my past experiences. But right now I have G.Skill 1066 that won't even run at 1000 so I don't really know what to say.

Hehe, well I built my brother a computer that has Crucial RAM from January, and they have seemed to run fine since then.

I guess since two people have told me here, and from reviews, I'll stay with G.Skill.
