The crucials perform amazingly for there price because Crucial is a subsidiary of Micron. Yeah the same Micron that makes the D9 memory chips.

Catch my drift...

for the price, yes, but i would rather go with 800 n OC to 1066 standard for 790FX.

how about simply "why"? lol. DDR2 1200? Ram timings are harrrrrdly beneficial in benchmarks. The price difference between DDR2 800 and anything above is better spent on graphics power.

Okay, everybody else wins just because... [rolls eyes] you guys need to get out more. a lot of poeple run 1066mhz... head over to XS and look for yourself.

with 1066mhz you are more likely to get perfect chips that will do insane speeds like 1400+mhz...but those guys at xs don't run that daily. Those are purely for benching.

Also there's a darn good chance most 5300s will do the exact same. The other week someone I know got 690mhz on the 5300s...thats 1380mhz.

My point is that if you plan on running 1000-1100mhz there's absolutely no point in wasting extra money on 1066 memory when you can get 6400 or 5300 that performs the same for a fraction of the price.
