there is no diference in performence between the new and the old, the chips are just on one side which means they are using larger ram chips it should output the same heat its not like the ysqueezed more chips onto one side lol, technically if u think about it the new ones should be better.

I beg to differ

NosBoost got his which I think were double sided and he can run 1050 MHZ at 5-5-5-15 2 (maybe 1) or something of the sort...

I couldn't even reach 925 on 5-5-5-15 3 with my sticks... (single sided)

RMA'ed them for a refund

but even with the D9, the sticks still suck at oc'ing... (not suck, but aren't up to par with the normal ballistix)

and yes I had tracers too
