Not that long ago we took a look at Crucial’s Ballistix Tactical Low Profile memory. Today we are checking out the Ballistix Sport Low Profile memory. Both of these memory kits solve the dilemma of an aftermarket CPU cooler covering up your memory slots. This kit is a low profile kit meaning it is going to fit below most aftermarket CPU coolers and be out of the way. There are not that many choices when it comes to low profile memory so that fact that Crucial is offering their Ballistix line in low profile versions is great. The memory we are taking a look at today is the 16GB (8GB x 2) kit running with timings of 9-9-9-24 at 1.35v (BLS2K8G3D1609ES2LX0). Read on as we check out this memory!

The Ballistix Sport Low Profile kit comes in Crucial’s normal packaging. The front is open so you can see what the modules look like before you buy them. Also on the front of the package is a sticker with all of the information you need. Flipping the package over there is some information about the different types of Ballistix memory.
