3DMark06 results for the Crucial Ballistix PC3-12800 CL8 memory in both stock and overclocked settings are very close. This benchmark is more of a videocard stress test as you can see...

ID Software Doom 3 1.3 Source: id Software

Doom 3 takes advantage of the latest videocard technology and pushes the processing power of the CPU to its absolute limit. At its highest setting, Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark which means even tomorrow's videocards will have a hard time running everything. The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is wasted. Each test is run three times with the third run being recorded.

Crucial Ballistix PC3-12800 (445/1780) 230.5

Despite the relatively low bandwidth in Sandra, Doom 3 framerates are pretty good and overclocking boosts scores nicely.

Sierra FEAR 1.08

Source: Sierra

FEAR is Sierra's latest first person shooter which relies heavily on DirectX 9 features. With its "Soft Shadows" feature enabled, even the fastest videocards run at a crawl, FEAR is definitely the new benchmark for future FPS games to follow.

Crucial Ballistix PC3-12800 (445/1780) 583

All DDR3 memory platforms perform about the same in FEAR, even overclocking the Crucial Ballistix PC3-12800 CL8 memory does not boost framerates as much as we expected.
