Crucial Ballistix 1GB Kit DDR2-800/PC2-6400 CL4 BL2KIT6464AA804 Memory Review

Crucial Ballistix 1GB Kit (2x512MB) PC2-6400/DDR2-800 Memory Review

Not only Intel PCs are using DDR2 modules, in the meanwhile it is also necessary for AMD PCs to look for DDR2 memory modules. Who like to upgrade for example to a current AMD Socket AM2 system, will find only the newer 240-pin DIMM sockets instead of the usual 184-pin sockets on these motherboards. However, in spite of the higher memory bus range you should expect no miracles. The Crucial Ballistix 1GB Kit (BL2KIT6464AA804) with 2x512MB PC2-6400/DDR2-800 CL4 memory modules are tested with usual frequencies, and with highest possible clock speeds in this test report. Let us see if it’s possible to overclock these DDR2 Dual Channel memory modules on the Socket AM2 Motherboard and if the performance increasement is as high as expected.
