Default Crucial Ballistix DDR2-1000 (Micron D9GMH) OC'ing Results

I'm not impressed with the results of messing with the timmings. 3 FPS at best? Maybe memory is just not a bottleneck on my system.



FAILURES
(Decided NOT to got above 1.375v)
4-4-4-08 1T at 1.375v/0800Mhz (400Mhz) would not pass SuperPI in XP
5-5-5-15 1T at 1.375v/1000Mhz (500Mhz) would not POST
3-3-3-08 2T at 1.375v/1000Mhz (500Mhz) would not POST

CRUCIAL LOVE
Memory survived 6 unstable Windows XP boots, 10 BIOS Post Failures, and 2.375v for an extended time without a problem. After testing I rechecked 4-4-4-12 (2T) at 1000Mhz with Memtest86+ overnight and it was still good. I'm gonna leave it at these timings but I want to do some more checks with 3DMark06 because it's results for these timings didn't make sense.

SETUP SCREW UP
For SuperPI, a 2M digits test was not enough to really show much of anything. Live and learn.
