I recently received a set of 4x1GB 1066Mhz Crucial BallistiX (5-5-5-15 2.2v)
I never made them run at those speeds, not even with only 2 DIMMs in the mobo.
Then one of the sets started making errors, and I RMA'd it... Got a new... Now the new set started making errors again? What is this? I'm gonna RMA this also, and ask for my money back. I'm gonna buy some new RAM anyway, these just don't seem to run very well with the rest of my system, for whatever reason.
So I've been looking at Corsair's DHX TWIN2X-4096, PC2-6400 5-5-5-18 @ 1.8v.
This is only 2x2gb, and will put less load on my northbridge, and they're only rated 1.8v. I never got to run 1066 on the other ones anyway, and any freq above FSB (running 400) seems to only show in memory benchmarks, which are not my favorite games. This is why I want to get these 800 ones. I just figured, that since they run 1.8v @ 800 mhz, and have those nice heatsinks (http://www.univendi.com/shop/images/...6400C5DHX.jpg), I'd be able to get them to run atleast 800mhz 4-4-4-12 @ 2.0 or 2.1, and I'd say they can handle the heat?
What are your opinions? Experience with this RAM set?
