    Unlike all other memory manufacturers who merely buy DDR-chips and solder them on PCBs of other manufacturers, Crucial builds their own memory chips and PCB. On the Tracer PC4000 you will also find unique leds for a good look. Although Crucial/Micron is not very known for overlocking RAM we will do an xtreme overclocking test with high voltages and try to determine if they are a good alternative to sticks with Samsung TCCDs or low latency modules like Winbond UTT BH-5/CH-5.

    Something I'd like to know, and I know others have asked-- does increasing the voltage above 3v risk blowing the LED's? Whats the tolerance on these?

    Hmm, good question, but how shuld i answer this? I can make an 24h burn-in with 3,9V and then we will see, which component gives up at first.. the ICs or the LEDs?! :p

    Edit: Wrote a email to crucial, let's see if they answer. ;)

    @//mAr Ich bins wieder...der Schwabe... ^^

    Another awesome review. :)
    You wrote the sticks are getting quite hot. Is it necessary to cool them actively @3.1V? 2.9V should be fine no matter what but I'm getting my Gig of these babies tomorrow so I would like to now if i can give them hell on my Abit AN8 Ultra right away... ^^
    Well there are 3 Revoltec 80mm Fans lying around here so cooling actively should be no problem either... ;)
