Crucial Ballistix PC2-6400 DDR2 1GB Kit

Sandra, 3DMark06 & CS:Source

Sandra, 3DMark06 & CS:Source Results

Sisoft Sandra produced similar results to Everest, showing that the most benefits in memory bandwidth were to be had when there was a balance between low latency timings and high frequencies with the memory clocked at 530mhz/4-4-4-12.

On the other hand 3DMark06 and Counter-Strike:Source produced quite different results. CS:Source showed it's preference for lower latencies producing it's best score at 530mhz/4-4-4-12 with 3DMark06 going in the opposite direction and showing it's preference for the higher frequencies at 560mhz.

You rock sox Jim, awesome review mate... I must say that's some great RAM as well, good to see Crucial utilizing the D9 IC's for their Ballistix lineup. Very odd about the mismatched IC's though, that's a little scary to me Don't know what happened there.

And I for one like the new heatspreaders, I think they look sweet!

Yeah that was really wierd about the IC's, and i must admit thinking that they wouldnt show much OC potential as a result - but quite the oposite
