Good timings for the price!
#2
I have these in my machine...really good ram, overclockable with the right motherboard too!. Heat and Rep added.
#3
Im planning on upgrading next month - teetering on buying these to be ready...

going whole hog (motherboard/processor and ram) so this is good for that! Though dont get paid until Wednesday... now to dcide which processor/mobo to get! lol.

Excellent price for Ballistix. :thumbsup:
#5
Not sure what the reliability of these are, hopefully better than the 1GB modules, they died very regularly.
#6
Nice ram, these just came out top in a comparison of 4GB kits posted today on toms hardware guide!
#7
Ah 8GB here we come :)

£40.57 with cheapest delivery.

Some of the best overclocking RAM at a bargain of a price!

Make sure to run them at 2.2 or very slightly above (2.4v max?) to get the best out of them. Note that this may not be possible in some motherboards due to BIOS limitations. Also running them at higher voltages may require loosening the timings to 5-5-5-....

The 2Gb (2x1Gb) kit was rated the best by Custom PC last year.

Probably a silly question (RAM and timings confuse me) but why do you need to slow the RAM down at higher voltages? I can understand that if you increase the clock speed, you maybe need to increase the voltage/decrease the timings, but why would an increase of voltage on its own require you to underclock RAM?

Thanks,
Al
#12
If you are raising the voltages then you are most likely overclocking the ram not underclocking it, timings are different to clock speed. As the clock speed increases the latency (timings) get worse usually.

Anyway if you want to understand a little more about ram, our trusty friend google came up with this site >>>

how do these compare to the ocz sticks?

Worst memory I ever bought was Crucial Ballistix DDR 1gb kit and their PC133 stuff never lasted either I noticed they've changed the lifetime warranty to 5 years now. So I have a 1gb kit to send back, but they don't sell them anymore and the PC133 is now out of warranty.
#15
Im about to send off my second set in 3 months of Crucial Ballistix 1gb modules to the manufacturors. They wont even run stably when underclocked - fine for a month or two and then fail despite never been over-volted. Read around as im not the only one. I have since bought some modules by a different manufacturer - my newly replaced modules will be on ebay on their return.

If you can collect - Aria have 4Gb Corsair 4GB PC2-6400 C5 at £37.89 - they postage is usually steep though.
#16
Just my luck paid about £46 for some GeiL Ultra sticks with the same specs a couple of days ago.

Ah well, at least I know the GeiL sticks are good because I've been using the 2gb kit for a while.

I'm on my 3rd Corsair kit, what does that mean, Corsair are **** ? Certainly not, they are still the best.

Just because you and a few others have had no joy with Balistix doesn't mean that they are not worth buying. You and a few others are in the miniscule percent of problems whereas plenty of people don't have any problems at all. Believe me, all manufacturers have peoblems with their memory.
#18
Haha, Ballistix failures have never been minuscule, but at least Corsair has lifetime warranty on the dram.

how do you get windows xp to recognise 4 gb ram ? im running 32 bit OS. but it only sees 2.75 gb?

You can't, it is an inherent limit of 32bit windows.

You'll have to upgrade to a 64bit operating system to be able to use more.

There's been significant problems with the 1GB DDR2 Ballistix modules, the number of reports of failures is far greater than with similar manufacturers.
#22
Word of warning. Crucial did have some sort of manufacturing issue which apparently was something to do with the ballistix range not being compatible with I think it was P35 & X38 motherboards (a lot of the most common boards). Basically the modules would die normally within 6 months. 3 of my 4gb lasted 11 months. If you are un-sure or think this is rubbish do a Google search. You should be able to find something on it. There were a lot of angry people posting online because the crucial website was still scanning & recommending ballistix memory for these motherboards well after Crucial found out.
#23
Still showing the wrong price, deals should include postage.
#24
EPIC price.

Shame it's OOS :(
