I think the Crucial ballistix are 4-4-4-12 timings, slightly tighter compared to the 4-4-4-15 of the OCZ Reapers. Not sure if that makes a difference for you. It is still a bit more expensive.

Depends on which reapers you get. There are like 4 different sets of 2x2. Jus tmake sure to get the 4-4-4-12 ones.

Ah, the way your original post read i thought you had the parts already. If you havent bought anything, you'd be better off with a q6600 or e8400 rather than the 6750.

The 8400 is 45nm rather than 65nm so it will overclock farther, and the q6600 is a quad core so double the cores.

do you think the e8400 is worth the extra $70 compared to the e6750? and also, has anyone found the e8400 for cheaper than $260? and with the q6600 being the same price as the e8400, which is the better buy?
