A little while ago we took a look at a 4GB dual channel Ballistix kit from Crucial. Today Crucial has sent us a 6GB triple channel kit of Ballistix and we are very eager to see how it performs. This 6GB kit runs at 1866MHz with timings of 9-9-9-24 at 1.65V. Just like the other kit we took a look at this kit features XMP profiles, Crucial’s new Ballisitx heatspreaders and on-board temperature sensors and monitoring software. Let’s check them out!
Module Size: 6GB Kit (2GBx3)
Package: Ballistix 240-pin DIMM
Feature: DDR3 PC3-14900
Specs: DDR3 PC3-14900 • 9-9-9-24 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1866 • 1.65V • 256Meg x 64 •
When I first requested these modules from Crucial they sent me a 4GB kit by accident. So they ended up sending me another 2GB kit. The 4GB kit came in Crucial’s default retail packaging that has information about the kit on the front and back.
The single module came in a box and was in a anti-static bag.
