Ballistix DDR3-1866 6GB Triple Channel Memory Kit Overview
Crucial’s new Ballistix heatspreaders are very eye-catching yet have a modern feel to them. Crucial has gone with a black heatspreader with a yellow stripe that runs across the bottom part of the heatspreader.
The heatspreader fins go up about half an inch above the modules so you are going to want to keep that in mind if you have a larger CPU cooler. Each module has 16 fins, which should help with cooling.
In the center of each module you have the Ballistix logo and small Crucial logo on the far left side. Also on the left towards the top you will find information about the modules like the part number, memory speed (1866MHz), timings (9-9-9-24), and voltage (1.65V).
The backside of each heatspreader is all black, which does match the black PCB that Crucial uses for each module.
