According to Tom's Hardware, the Crucial Ballistix has a latency of 5-5-5-14, when overclocked to 1066MHz. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...ry,2079-6.html

I have the Crucial myself and I've been able to get it to boot above 1200MHz with a slight increase in voltage, which is pretty good. So I think you'll do better will the Crucial, not to mention that it's three bucks cheaper.
