Mushkin Ballistix 2GB Kit (2x1024MB) PC2-8500/DDR2-1066 Memory Review

Mushkin shows with their current XP2-8500 DDR2-1066 memory modules that it's possible to get high performance for low money. Because ocinside.de was able to overclock an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Socket AM2 CPU to approx. 3000 MHz and the enormously high memory overclocking up to 600 MHz (DDR2-1200) was an important factor for these results. If you're using a DDR2 motherboard with some overclocking options, you shouldn't miss this Mushkin XP2-8500 Review.

I am incredibly confused, are they reviewing Mushkin stick or Crucial Ballistix? Pictures are Mushkin, but specs are listed as Crucial?

Crucial doesn't have a 1066 part.

I'm sorry guys, I didn't even catch that when I posted the article. The e-mail I got had 'Crucial' in the title, but the article itself says 'Mushkin'.

Not his fault anyways, when you first linked to it the article itself was labeled Crucial Ballistix at the top and the specs listed also name Crucial Ballistix. They fixed it though.
