    Crucial Ballistix Elite 2x4GB 1600 C8 1.5V

    Since it's not so popular memory and I got 2 kits yesterday, I will add some tests to this thread.

    ....................
    I'm curious if anyone has this kit or maybe compared it to 2x4GB 1866 1.50V.
    I just ordered it for my friend and maybe I will keep one of these kits too.
    There was nice deal on amazon - 36.15 and free shipping what is much lower than Crucial price ... and it's about half price of 2x4GB 1866 C9.

    ....................

    EDIT: changed thread from general question to tests ( ... and maybe short review, will see )

    My friend wanted 1866 Elite or Tactical Tracers and I was thinking about one too but price from Crucial store is quite high so we decided to get that Elite 1600 when we saw amazon price and free shipping to Poland. 60+17 shipping vs 36.15 and free shipping is quite a difference if these both kits can perform about the same ( after oc of course )
    Elite 1866 can make 1600 7-7-7 , 1866 8-8-8 and 2133 9-9-9 on 1.55-1.60V. I'm counting on almost the same from 1600 kit ... I just wish to know if anyone else had luck with these 1600 Elites.

    16GB ( 4x4GB ) tests - 1.50V

    Since I have only Celeron G530 I will make faster tests for most configs. Probably will add some more when I get IB. Some tests on Celly just take really much time.
    So general tests for now are performed on ASUS Maximus V Gene and Celeron G530@stock ( and stock cooler ). This cpu's IMC can make up to 2270MHz on 2x2GB G.Skills/PSC so there is standard max for most SB.

    16GB ( 4x4GB ) @ 1600 8-8-8-24 1T 1.50V all other timings and voltages on auto

    Feel free to ask questions or add any comments. I just got these kits ( and I don't know how long I will have all 16GB ) so it's good time for that

    Edit:
    - changed 16GB / 1600 7-7-7-20 1T to result on 1.57V ( before was 1.63V )
    - added 16GB / 2133 9-9-9-28 2T 1.66V

    additional notes:
    16GB 1600 CL6 - any config and voltages - no boot
    16GB 1866 CL7 - any config and voltage till 1.75V - no boot
    16GB 2133 CL9-9-9 and 10-10-10 need almost the same voltage ( will work on it later, so far 2133 CL10 test skipped )
