Crucial Ballistix Tracer's?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have heard stories about Crucial switching their ballistix memory to single-sided PCB's (i.e. only one side has emeory IC's on it) which is not good, for a variety of reasons. My question is, does this affect the Tracers as well, or just regular Ballistix? More specifically, is the following kit double-sided or single sided?

Yes it affects tracers. All the new 1Gb modules are shipping single sided. The voltage requirements are no longer 2.2v, but 2.0v instead.
