When benchmarking the Ballistix I wanted to be sure to cover all angles. Some people like to run their memory at low latencies, some like to run their memory at high frequencies, whilst others prefer a mixture of both settings. Below is some information regarding the testing procedures and their results:
I'm pleased to say that the Ballistix passed the stock testing with flying colours, managing to run at 4-4-4-12/DDR2-800 with 2.2v on our Asus P5B-Deluxe test bed.
Increasing the memory timings from 4-4-4-12 to 5-5-5-15 enabled me to squeeze an extra 30mhz out of the modules bringing the maximum frequency obtainable up to DDR2-1120.
