The Ballistix in question, were the regulars. But I don't think the Tracers were affected. I had Tracers a few months ago, and I too, was able to boot 'em up at 1000+ speeds with no problem. Magicstix Tracers FTW

The red ballistix 4gb kits are already out over here and have proven to be good clockers. 1050-1125mhz. However for 4gb kits I would rather have the OCZ ReaperX

Also I have the "new" normal ballistix and they still OC great, 1200mhz 2.2v...currently running 920mhz 4,4,3,8 @ 2.14V

Are the new Ballistix running different IC chips? A different revision of D9's? Last I checked they were stick d9gmh
