Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC2-8500 DDR2 1066MHz (2 x 1GB) RAM

To say that I'm absolutely thrilled with the performance of these modules would be a lie. I felt like they weren't consistent, and in tests where I would have guessed that they would have recieved higher marks, they got lower marks. The thing that definitely saved this RAM is its overclocking ability. To be able to take a set of DDR2 1066 and turn it into DDR2 1200 is simply awesome. The sticks made a noticeable difference in my computer. The LEDs are very fun to watch because they flash when they are being used and the blue LEDs on the bottom of the RAM definitely adds a really cool look to the inside of my computer. You should have seen the lights in MemTest! They were going absolutely nuts because of all rigorous tests being done. I had no problems  with these sticks and I found that the voltage wasn't too high, especially with being able to hit 600MHz. I would recommend these sticks if you're going to be using them to overclock because they put out some real good numbers.
