OC3D Review: Crucial Ballistix PC3-12800 2GB DDR3 Kit

"Crucial Ballistix DDR2 kits have always been a favourite among overclockers. Today we'll be reviewing the DDR3 incarnation to see if they are worthy of the Ballistix name."

nice review

its worth noting that crucial's DDR2 kits now come with the same style heatspreader, no clips and only stuck on (requiring blow torch to remove)

i've got the 8500DDR2 ballistix kit and they look identical to these except for the DDR3 bit on the logo

also the 8500 review cannot be found on the front page under memory

You sure mate? If i go to Memory, I can see the 8500 kit on the lower half of the page. Also if you go to page 2 of memory reviews, the 6400 kit should be there.

When you say other PC12800 kits have nearly hit 2000mhz.. Which one was that??

I remember the Patriot PC15000 getting very close.

Exactly, the Patriot came within 14mhz (FSB-wise) of it:
