I suggest avoiding Crucial Ballistix....I had problems getting any OC to stick so I RMA'd it for 2gb of Corsair Dominator 1066 and I've had it clocked to 1250Mhz stable for 2 weeks so far. PC10000 friggin flies on this board. I just hope it stays stable lol.

It must be your 680i that doesn't like it, because I have a friend w/ Crucial Ballistix DDR2667 who's overclocked his to 1000mhz with 4-4-4-5 timings on a P5B Deluxe w/ a 3.5gHz Allendale.

Crucial's usually a very good, overclockable memory.

im on 2gb kit of ballistix PC8000 and im running 1066 4-4-4 with 2.35v 24/7
love the stuff, they raised the price back up tho so you might be off finding something else. xtremesystems.org will have some threads with some good info i'd imagine.

I have the Mushkin 8500 in a new build that I am running at 3.15GHz with no problems so far. Stability testing at 9x350 with DDR @ 800MHz before trying to go further. These have Micron D9 chips so I figured that would be a good start.

The 680i boards are very picky with memory. There's a red sticker outside the box of my P5N32-E SLI that says "due to NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI chipset, Asus only guarentees Dimms on memory QVL (qualified vendors list)".

I use the Mushkin you linked and here's a test of them @ X-bit:

I've had mine to DDR2 1100 4-4-4-8 on 965 with 2.45v. I like the fact that they do DDR2 800 3-3-3-4 personally.

There is faster memory out there and your are going to pay much more for it.

Has anyone used EEP? It seems to crash my system when i use it. When i say crash i mean the BIOS freezes. GOnna look for a new BIOS for the ASUS P5N32-E
