The following information has been taken directly from Crucial's website:
"A Ballistix dual inline memory module (DIMM) consists of a number of memory components that are attached to a black printed circuit board. The gold pins on the bottom of the DIMM provide a connection between the module and a socket on a larger printed circuit board. The pins on the front and back of a DIMM are not connected to each other. Ballistix 240-pin DIMMs are used to provide DDR2 SDRAM memory for desktop computers. DDR2 is a leading-edge generation of memory with an improved architecture that allows it to transmit data very fast.
Ballistix 240-pin DIMMs are available in DDR2 PC2-4200 SDRAM (DDR2 533), DDR2 PC2-5300 SDRAM (DDR2 667), and DDR2 PC2-6400 (DDR2 800)."
• Package: Ballistix 240-pin DIMM
• Feature: DDR2 PC2-6400
• Configuration: 64Meg x 64
• DIMM Type: UNBUFFERED
• Error Checking: NON-ECC
• Speed: DDR2-800
• Voltage: 2.2V
• Memory Timings: 4-4-4-12
I was disappointed to see no mention of a warranty for the Ballistix modules on Crucial's site. Considering that these modules are aimed at enthusiasts it would be nice to see them warranted up to a certain voltage (for example 2.4v) for that extra piece of mind during overclocking.
On the up-side, the Ballistix modules have impressive timings of 4-4-4-12 at DDR2-800 (PC2-6400). One thing to note about these modules is their need for a motherboard capable of providing its DDR slots with a minimum of 2.2v. Without this voltage, the Ballistix modules may not work to their full potential.
