    Crucial Ballistix Max 4400 @1.7v



    1.25v SA & IO

    I bought some of this as the price was now reduced to 180, and I'm building an I5 12600 non K media PC to put my old ram into.

    4600+ doesn't play nice with my Intel IMC, I was able to get it boot stable at 4800 CL16 1.75v with quite some difficulty, but it would eventually throw loads of errors.

    1.75v DRAM, 1.3v SA & IO, might be stable between 1.7-1.75v DRAM which I will try next.

    15-20-20 was a brick that needed swapping the ram to reset. 15-21-21 prompted startup failed error, as did 46 tras.

    So it BSODs up to 1.73125v, but is stable so far at 1.7375v.

    ________

    1.7375 was unstable after a while, been using it 24/7 now at 4600 CL15 1.75 for over a week without issues, with enough cooling to keep them under 50c outside of stress tests.

    This is Micron 16GBit Revision B, right?

    It is.

    I believe its basically double density Micron E die, so its single rank compared to my previous dual rank kit.

    Dual rank does also give a performance boost though, but I can't be bothered swapping between them to test, waiting for my H670 media PC build to put the old ram into, eta for end of the month on the mobo.

    The thing is though while these have been reduced to around 175, the 2x16 3200 kit can currently be bought for around 85, which may or may not overclock to 4000+, but they should all be using single rank Micron B die now since those kits are also made in 2x32 Gb density.

    I'm thinking if Intel 13th gen still has DDR4 support, I might upgrade then to the 13900k to keep this ram going as long as possible, really not interested in DDR5 over this, but that also depends on when I would expect to actually need 64 Gb too.

    Well I tried pushing it some more to the point of bricking Windows 11 and needing to reinstall.

    At 1.8v 4666 and 4700 CL15 will boot but error quickly and led to the brick.

    4800 CL16 also isn't stable at 1.8v.

    And I don't think there are any dual rank 2x16 kits that can manage 4600CL15, and neither would trying to run 4 of these modules on a 4 slot board.
