that seams about right for 2.2v to get higher it will need more juice =) I dont even know if my sticks will go that high with that low of a voltage .If you want I will play with mine @ 2.2v just to give you a compairison @ such a low voltage . ( oh and BTW 2.3v is stock on the IC specs for these chips Crusial just says 2.2 because the run the stock speed fine with even 2.1 )

You're right about the juice....but there is a bit of a difference here....I run the PC2-8500 Tracers....and you run the PC2-6400 Ballistix? There should be a big difference! Please let me know what yours do at different settings?

The I'll try to see what these can do at 2.3V or higher!

The comments I've seen relating to leaving Ballistix memory at 2.2V haven't been pointing to the chips, the culprit appears to be the PCB they use.

There have been many complaints about sticks frying when higher volts have been used.

That said.... now that a set of them can be picked up for around $100 on sale, maybe I'll consider bumping up to higher volts and take my chances. (They do apparently run hot though).
