  1. The Crucial Ballistix can do 3-3-3-8 @800MHz @1.95-2.1volts or 5-5-5-15 @1200MHz @2.2volts. I have two different PC's with these Ballistix and both pairs can do the above timings & MHz. Those GSkill's are great and very popular, but need 2.4 volts and thats more volts that I'd like to give any Ram. The Ballistix can be had for $159.99 at NewEgg right now. Just look at my overclock in my sig, I know I can go to 3.8GHz but temps are to high for air cooling.

    Yes those are the ones, you can get the Ballistix Tracer (fast moving LED lights) which is really cool! They cost a bit more though, this Ram is really the best you can get anywhere.
