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

Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000)
Model #: BL2KIT12864AA1005

5-5-5-15 2T 2.2v

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.

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

Yeah the core 2 like the Athlon is not at all bandwith sensitive unlike the P4, due to the clock cycles of 11 Vs the Prescotts 38 in this case due to them being slower they try to cache most of it as such is very bandwith heavy
