Hi. Just got my Crucial Ballistix in last night... I'm in Vista x86 and bought 4x1 to replace 2x1 Dominators (which no longer have the Micron D9 IC, so I couldn't just add another two of them). I started to mess with them today on my lunch break.

I start with:
810MHz 5-5-5-15-2T 2.2v - This works fine.

Then I get this inkling that I want to find a way to run 1T (I could with my Dominators, but that's only 2x1GB).

I try:
810MHz 4-4-4-12-1T 2.3v - No POST, so I figure to scale back the speed all the way to a 1:1...

540MHz 4-4-4-12-1T 2.25v - POST and my Vista score goes up to 5.8 from 5.7 (no time to benchmark... come on; it's my lunch break). So, I get excited and curious. I know I can't get 1T with over 800, so I start OCing the speed...

I try:
1080MHz 4-4-4-12-2T 2.2v - No POST
1080MHz 5-5-5-15-2T 2.2v - POST, but BSOD loading Windows
1080MHz 5-5-5-15-2T 2.3v - POST, but BSOD loading Windows
1080MHz 5-5-5-15-2T 2.35v - POST, but BSOD loading Windows

So, right now I'm back to 810MHz 4-4-4-12-2T 2.25v. This also gives me 5.8 score.

The moral of the story is 4x1GB is finicky in Vista, sure... but I can certainly live with 2T at 810. BTW, What's going on with the Windows score? 540 1T = 810 2T? Does the command rate matter THAT much, or does it just have a weird way of scoring? I don't intend to do performance benchmarks until after I install x64 this weekend, so I guess I might end up answering that one on my own.

Bloodthurstyemu, how have you got such good timings at 1068Mhz? I cant get my 1066Mhz stuff to do cas 4... nor can i run it at over 1100Mhz?

Can anyone assist me in getting it up to 1150 maybe?
And no, all command rate does i think is try to squeeze in more ram cycles.

2T will allow your RAM to clock higher and generally with intel rigs, more mhz is better than command rate and timings.

it is the 680i chipset that is finicky with 4GB of ram, not vista.
