When it comes to performance memory there are quite a few choices. The one thing you always want to consider is the actual height of the modules. Many aftermarket CPU coolers actually may cover the memory slots on your motherboard. This means you could be limited to what memory you can use. This has actually been a problem for quite a while now. The only real solution was to go with a watercooling setup, but many people do not want to deal with that. Crucial has finally solved the problem by releasing Low Profile versions of both their Ballistix Tactical and Ballistix Sport memory. Today we are taking a look at the Ballistix Tactical LP memory, more specifically the BLT2K8G3D1608ET3LX0 kit. It is a 16GB kit running at 1600MHz with timings of 8-8-8-24 at 1.35v. Let’s take a look!
Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, today announced the immediate availability of Crucial Ballistix Low Profile (LP) memory, which delivers a true low profile design to provide more clearance around high-end CPU coolers and improve airflow throughout the system. Designed for performance enthusiasts and small form factor computer builders with limited space, Crucial Ballistix LP memory features all the performance benefits of Ballistix memory without the height concerns of taller modules.
Not that long ago we took a look at Crucial’s Ballistix Elite memory and new we are back with the Ballistix Tactical Tracer Memory. Crucial’s Ballistix Tactical memory sits in the middle of the Ballistix line between the Ballistix Sport and the Ballistix Elite. Geared towards gamers the Ballistix Tactical Tracer memory features a very cool heatspreader, activity-indicating LEDs on the top edge, ground-effect LEDs along the bottom and temperature sensors that you can monitor with Crucial’s M.O.D. software. The kit we are taking a look at today is made up of 4 BLT4G3D1869DT2TXOB 4GB modules. So that gives us a 16GB kit running at 1866Mhz with timings of 9-9-9-27 at 1.5v. Is this the kit you want in your gaming rig? Read on to find out!
Mini-SATA or mSATA as most people call it was announced towards the end of 2009. It has primarily been used in laptops and netbooks where a very small solid state drive has been needed.

The drive in question today is the Crucial M4 mSATA 256GB drive. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!
