    That RAM is based on Micron D9GMH or D9GKX. These chips generally clock to at least 1100, and most will do 1200MHz or even more.

    Is Crucial still using D9GMH or D9GKX modules for their DDR2 Ballistix? I thought they were primarily used now in DDR3.

    Not sure which they are using, The new sticks are all rated at 2.0V though

    I am sure if you look around at some newer reviews you will find out, or you could ask Crucial directly, I think they will tell you

    Just on the crucial and mushkin testing:
    The mushkin seems to have the same problems as my own with the same "other people get 1066" thing.
    But as it says 800mhz theres no guarantees.
    The crucial ballistixs seem a lot better and even have a 1000mhz epp .Why dont they sell those ballistix sticks as 8000 or 8500memory tho.
    Maybe its a marketing policy.
    Ill check out the OCZ's too online.

    Well I have several Mushkin 800Mhz sets that will do 1066+ without issues, just seems that particular model or Set I received will not easily. At least on that board I was using, and within respectable voltages and timings. I could likely have loosened timings up to crappy timings or raised voltages, but I did not have that intention.

    And ya like you said they are 800Mhz so anything above that is a bonus. And you also have to keep in mind those are only Mushkins Mid Range sticks, not the best overclockers anyway so I did not expect to awful much out of them for being 2x2GB since they are harder to overclock anyway. The Black sets are much easier to play around with

    Ya, those New Crucial's seems to work great in several boards. I think they add the 1000 Profile just because they know it will do it. Which they do, plus some without excessive voltage as well.

    They do offer 1066 ballistix, and I would imagine it is the same chips maybe? Maybe not though, but I dont think the 1066 sticks have a extra higher profile in them

    Im in europe.
    The crucials (hurrah) would work out just a little more expensive than getting them from a friend in the US.
    They do have ballistixs(in europe)rated/sold as 8500 but they are the 1gb sticks.
    Managed to get the PI.s up to 1020 for full testing,well 1.5hrs of prime after 1 memtest pass.tREF of 6**** (had to set it after boot into windows)but no breakthru and that isnt much use to me.
    I suppose I just want to see how far the cpu will go.
    and maybe get 9Gb bandwidth stable.
    Im not going to spend the $300 for the black PI 9200 ddr2 tho for 200mhz cpu speed

    Are they the 2.0V sticks, the Crucial's I mean? The 6400's would do just as good as the 8500's, I ran them above 1200

    I believe so
    DDRII upgrades from Crucial.com

    from the list: obviously if i was buying 2x1 id go for the ones that "say" 8500 as the price is almost the same.
    Ill go ahead n order something on Mon based on whether I just want to see 3.6Ghz+ cpu under test for 30 euro or go 55 euro n sell my black pi or samsung 5300.

    Ya, you might as well since they are likely binned better anyway.

    About your link, that only takes me to crucial with the full page of 88 showing. But the only 2x1GB 8500 I see is 2.0V You can check the voltage to be sure by clicking on a single module link. Are you buying direct from them?

    yeh buying direct,they seem to be the only supplier (of their ram) in europe.
    The link goes down to 6 of 88 after a few secs for me but anyway all of the 6 yellow ballistix seem to be 2.0v.
