|When You Have The Ultimate Performance System, Can You Really Tolerate Inferior Memory?|
It doesn't matter how fast a memory module is if it isn't stable and doesn't fit your system. Software crashes, choppy game play, and driver and operating system hiccups — all can be caused by bad memory modules. Performance and stability are Crucial! Don't settle for anything less than Ballistix!

I was trying to go for quality.1/14/2011
I'm glad I finally built a new computer with DDR3 memory & done away with this. I had so much trouble with one stick I finally just used one & threw the other one to the side.When I went to DDR3 memory I went with Geil ripgaw, next time I'll try something else & maybe one day I'll come across Good memory that works as advertised with no flaws. Haven't found it yet!
2 RMA's in 8 Months5/16/2008
I installed this memory in a Gigabyte GA-P35SC-DS3R motherboard and have had to RMA it twice in 8 months. The first time was due to repeated memory errors; the second time, one stick failed completely. What make it worse is that I didn't even overclock it.
My buddy said it looks like a disco in my case12/20/2007
The price is cheaper than most other places. It was pretty easy to use; just put it in the slot. I have 4GB on a NF68-A1 EVGA 680i board, and Vista(64-bit) recognized all 4GB. XP(32-bit) recognized 2.25GB. Pretty fast RAM for DDR2(for the price). Default setting in BIOS was set to 800, so you'll have to change it to 1066 if this is the case for you. Crucial recommends timmings of 5-5-5-15 @ 2.2v. Depending on how big of an overclocker you are, you may use different timmings and voltages (why else would you buy Ballistix??).
Can't Go Wrong with Crucial12/19/2007
Only been a few days since I built my computer. So far so good. Very good performance. The LED lights on the card is a nice addition. Great chip for overclocking. Overclocked my 2.4Ghz Quad Core to 3.1Ghz and is running fine. Definitely recommend.
It was a good price12/7/2007
I hate sending anything back and I do overclock untill now. I ended up with one bad stick.rather than send it back I underclocked it until it would run. SO I'm running at 2.259v,I can't go down to 2.2v, My other option would be 2.178v & 980MHz is as high as I can go.Actual speed is 977.8MHz The way I'm looking at this is, If this were 800mhz memory for the price I payed this would be great memory. So I'm OK with it..My only problem is I wanted to push my Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe Processor 2.4GHz To over 3GHz I was running it at 3GHz, No big feat for me,but now I'm running it at 2.4GHz to keep things stable. My Motherboard is an Asus P5N-E SLI & I have the newest bios revision 0604 OH and my other problem is I'm running windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit witch slows me down too.I was running my FSB at 1200MHz & even though My FSB & memory is unlinked I had to drop it to 1100MHz after installing this memory.
Best RAM for overclockers and Showoffs12/4/2007
I bought these RAM back Summer 07. Actually got the 800Mhz max version (so PC2-8400 i believe) and got these for free upgrade after RMA. These are very reliable and fast ram. They look like a space ship on steroids with blinking LED, perfect for a custom built with a show panel. You can OC this baby to 1066Mhz but i haven't tried. Make sure you up the Voltage on the RAM in BIOS if you are doing it. Also make sure your motherboard can handle that voltage if you are making it high. If these get cheaper, I might get another pair.
incredible price (about half the next cheapest store). runs great with my 2gb kit of g.skill hz (d9 also). overclocked to 1200 ish at 2.3v. 4/4/4/15.
Memory is working great. Seems to run pretty hot though and I guess that's why it's cased in metal. The pretty little lights are fun for the little ones to watch..... Haven't overclocked it too high so I can't attest to it's worth on that end.
Excellent Customer Service11/30/2007
When I first got this RAM, I had to mess with the timings to get it to work with my motherboard (eVGA 680i). When I called customer service, I quickly got transferred to a person who was very helpful. I recommend Crucial memory for its' performance and the customer service compared to other companies out there.
Extremely happy with purchase. First time buy from Buy.com and sure won't be the last. I shopped around and this was the best price and delivery was very prompt. I won't hesitate to buy from here again. Oh, and the RAM looks fantastic as well as exceeds performance spec. This Ram is very highly rated and works well with quad core processors.
I would recommend this memory. Not only is it an excellent product, if you have a case with a clear side it puts on a great light show with the built in LEDs.
