[WTB] Crucial Ballistix DDR2 1066 16FD5 (2x1G sticks)

Recommended Posts

For old-school overclocking experiment I need 2x1G Crucial Ballistix DDR2 sticks, however they have to be the better bins (hence 1066) and double sided with good chips (hence 16FD5).

I have no interest in the new ones, w/o the clips on heatspreader:(oldest ones = big, standard clips, great; old ones = small sized clips, good; new ones = no clip, worthless rubbish)

I also have no interest with the modern single sided chips (8F5, etc.), as they are simply rubbish: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/249869-30-crucial-ballistix-defectiveWe've simply stopped making the 16-chip modules. It is no longer cost effective.Well I am extremely disaspointed that a different product would get marketed as the same product.

The aim is to be able run them at low voltage (2.1V) and around 300MHz with 3-2-2-8 1T timings, like they managed up to 340MHz there in review:

And I was told, that the only chance is to use rams with Micron D9Gxx chips ( http://ramlist.i4memory.com/ddr2/ ), as most can do 400 MHz 3-3-3-9 (on P45, Auto subtimings).
