Crucial Ballistix Sport XT DDR3-1866 16GB Memory Kit Overview
Unlike the normal Ballistix Sport modules the Ballistix Sport XT modules use a very vibrant blue heat spreader. This of course is a 16 GB kit so we have four 4 GB modules. This can be configured in a dual channel or quad channel setup depending on what system you are using.
On each side of the heat spreader is a large Ballistix Sport logo in the center and a smaller Crucial logo to the left. Crucial has gone with plain green for the PCB, which in my opinion just looks sort of dull, especially since Crucial wants to be marketing this memory to gamers.
The heat spreader also has since nice silver accents. On the opposite side of the modules is a small sticker that has important information like the model number, speed, timings and voltage.
The heat spreaders are much larger than the normal Ballistix Sport ones so you are going to want to make sure you will not have any clearance issues with your current system. The larger heat spreader allows for better cooling as there is a larger surface area to dissipate heat.
