Crucial Ballistix PC3200 @ 250FSB 2-2-2-11 Possible?

If you look at Anandtech review of the crucial ram it shows that they are using the new micron chip based on a new stepping. They were able to reach 250fsb @ 2.5-2-2-5 but on two dual sided sticks of 512 x 2. This is all with only ""2.65 volts"". :eek: :eek:

 

I'm thinking we could be able to run them at 250 @ 2-2-2-11 with single sided ram maybe even at only 2.8-3.0 volts.

 

I'm going to order some today and tell you how it goes. :)

...extreme ATech is fast losing credence over the latest batch of reviews they have done and most think they now get 'nothing' but "cherries". So much so in fact that I think somebody said that ATech was going to try and test again on NF2 so they could save some face.

 

Fact is that very situation has many trying now to define what is a review site and which to believe. I got so tired of the sameO sameO reviews using Intel when I was using AMD that I have read NO reviews on any site in nearly 2 years. The reviews just painted such a picture of a world I did not live in and never would.

 

Oh well life goes on and that memory is still up in the air from the few that have used it.

I bet the largest sites get slipped "ringers" all the time. Whenever the manufacturers can.

 

RGone being "real". It's Impossible for me to believe any reviews until I've seen some real results/problems in various forums.

 

so I'm with uwackme,

Test away bunky!!!!

 

tell us what it does with your sista. An don't be shy with the screenies.

I would be suspicious of ANY new RAM that they say will hit 250 on an NF2(since it'd almost have to be on a DFI and we would know)with even semi tight timings because the mfg's are all going the opposite direction with high latency stuff @ PC4000 levels due to the change in memory controller designs on the newer chipsets.

Hopefully your vendor will go through and hand test 500 sticks of memory and send

you the best pair like AT got.
