    So I'm just curious, I took off my spreaders today and found that mine are the infamous D9GMH chips... Now I'm really happy... *sad yes I know*

    Anyways, anyone got any numbers, I'm kinda curious, I have only taken mine to 900 @ 4-4-4-12 @ 2.0.

    Well the Axe ram is Micron D9GMH (B6-3) and higher than 2.2 your taking chances of them burning out.

    Sorry for the pic size.

    They probably go higher but i do not bother due to risking my raid setups. Heard others have got them higher..

    I had some G.Skill D9GMH rated as 4-4-4-12 PC6400 2.1v, but I had them running 1066MHz 5-5-5-18 with 2.2v for over a year.

    I have 3 pair of Crucial Ballistix Tracers all dbl sided D9's. 2 sets of 1066 and 1 set of 800. I just bought another set of the 1066 ones..

    Have had the 1066's @ 1256 mhz and the 800's @ 926 mhz.

    Like was mentioned above, Transcend cherry picked the D9s for their 1066/1200 series and Ive heard of folks getting 1400mhz on them. Of course, YMMV but its worth a shot. Perhaps some direct airflow like Corsairs Dominator fan to help with heat issues?

    I just opened a pair of black mushkin ram that i have had since the begining of time, It says Xp2-6400. I always use it when i first build a system sincwe i know it works all the time and at a lot of different settings.

    But after reading this thread, i decided to move the heat spreader and walla, it is D9 GMH, i always figured it was but now i know for sure... So i think i will push this with the next build..

    548fsb@4-4-4-12, not to shabby...


    I like this list, I also have 4x1g douvle sided sticks of Crucial PC2-6400 CL4

    \BAM found them, they list 4 flavors and one is the red ones....
    but these heat spreaders are on very tight, I was thinking of using a hair dryer to heat it up to loosen, but then i think it would be hard to put back since it's only held on by the glue...

    It's like an puzzle, which chips do you have? lol...


    PC2-6400 Ballistix
    P/N ending with .16FDx
    4.0-4-4-12 @ 2.2V

    here is the 4 different D9's they could be...

    Micron D9GMH (B6-3)
    Micron D9GCT (B6-37E) (possible)
    Micron D9GKX (B6-25E) (possible)
    Micron D9DQW (BT-37E) (red text)

    You guys gotta remember though, speed isnt everything your FSB is going to limit how fast your memory is.. though you can run 1200mhz memory if your FSB is only 266/333 you are not going to see full gains, also 900mhz CAS 4 is as fast as 1100mhz CAS 5

    Here is a good example of FSB limitation, 1250mhz but i was using an E2180@312FSB at the time so 8 mb/s was all i achieved

    http://img354.imageshack.us/my.php?image=memoryspeedpc5.jpg
    here is the same ram @the same speed(little tighter timings), motherboard everything but a different CPU(an E6600 Oc'ed to 445 FSB) now my Read speed is a whooping 11mb/s!

    Well I got mine to 4-4-4-12 @ 2.0 @ 950...

    I also have the corsair dominator fan setup on them :)

    I had a set of Wintecs and Corsairs that were Promo's, those didn't do too bad surprisingly enough, not nearly as good as these but.

    I think if you give your ram 2.1v-2.15-2.2v and 5-5-5-15 you could get around 1100mhz if you got good chips and if your board can do it. but don't kill them D9s don't like high voltage i ran 2.4v into one set of ram i had that had D9s and it didn't last long even with a fan on them.

    EDIT: i also had promos before and i got them to run 1000mhz@4-4-4-12@2.2v passed memtest overnight

    My G/F's rig is running my 4x1GB G.Skill PC6400 HZ's (D9GMH's confirmed) at 5-5-5-15, DDR1000 (500FSB 1:1 ratio) @ 2.05v..memtest and blend stable. Great stuff! I'm also impressed by her GB P35 DS3L board! It took those D9's further than my DFI P35 DK ever could!
