I'm looking for a 2x2 4-4-4-12 (DDR 800) memory kit that use Micron D9 chips. What recommendations does everyone have?

corsair memory with the term "DHX" in it's name should have micron, but you will pay upwards of $250 for the set. or you can get 4 sticks of crucial ballistix for less than $120 with guaranteed micron, since crucial is owned by micron.

Will they provide 4-4-4-12 a lot of people are recommending Patriot 2x2 that will provide 4-4-4-12 but I haven't got a link on newegg.

i know the crucial ballistix has 4-4-4-12 because that's what I'm running (see my sig). Not sure about the corsair though, patriot extremes run 4-4-4-12 as well.

They don't make a high-overclocking Micron D9GMH or D9GKX equal in a densities that high is most likely the answer.

There is not much evidence on what chips overclock best from 2x2GB configurations from what I've seen on the web, and if you get Micron D9s, it won't even guarantee you much for the reason I stated above. Just like not all 1GB density Micron D9s are crazy overclockers, not all of the 2x2GB kits will do well.

I have decided to go with Chuckm's memory recommendation for some realiable\stable good-rated 4-4-4-12 memory:

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Memory

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Memory

Yeah, G.Skill is pretty epic

My recommendation would have been the G-Skill 800 CL4 stuff or the G-Skill 1000 CL5, those are the cheapest at their respective speeds and timings, and G-Skill is a pretty good brand.
