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!
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!
This time around we’re taking a look at G.Skill’s TridentX series. Starting at 2133Mhz and going all the way up to 2800Mhz, the TridentX Series is brutally fast. A black and red theme well suited to ASUS’ ROG series or ASRock’s Fatal1ty series, it looks awesome if you’re the kind of person who likes oversized or extreme styling.
The kit G.Skill have sent us is the middle of the spectrum; 2400Mhz, yet it’s only CAS 10 – speeds, with high speeds with such low latency this kit promises to be a strong performer. Lets check it out!
Kingston has always been the memory that comes to mind when I think of enthusiast memory. Their HyperX line of memory has been their top of the line enthusiast memory and some of the first ever enthusiast memory to be released. Today we are going to be checking out their HyperX Genesis DDR3-1600 8GB Dual Channel Memory kit (KHX1600C9D3X2K2/8GX). This kit features Kingston’s newer heatspreaders and runs at 1600MHz with timings of 9-9-9-27 at 1.65V. This kit is the perfect starting kit for someone who is looking into dual channel memory. Read on as we take a look…
Our friends over at Kingston have just sent us a 4GB kit of their Limited Edition HyperX DDR3-1600 low latency memory (KHX1600C7D3X1K2/4GX). These modules are primarily being sold overseas (Russia/Eastern Europe). They run at 1600MHz and have a CAS latency of 7 with timings of 7-8-7-20 at 1.65V. Being that this kit only runs at 1600MHz and has low timings this should leave a lot of headroom for overclocking. Read on and see how far we can push these modules.
We’ve all seen different branded kits of memory, from memory that has the strangest heatsink design to SLI-ready memory. But what a lot of people haven’t really encountered before is AMD Ready memory. Today we’ll be looking at one of the few AMD Black Edition Ready Memory Kits, which work great with an AMD based system. Read on further to find out what unique AMD only software we used to help us along with the review.
A little while ago we took a look at Patriot’s Viper Xtreme triple channel memory that is designed for Intel X58 systems. Today we are checking out the Viper Xtreme Division 2 Edition memory which is designed for Intel’s 2nd generation “Sandy Bridge” Core processors. This memory has been rigorously tested and validated on the Intel 6 Series platform to achieve maximum performance and stability. The Division 2 memory has all of the same features as the original Viper Xtreme memory like the 6 gram copper core and aircraft-grade aluminum heatspreaders. Today we will be putting the 8GB DDR3-1866 kit to the test.
Corsair is a company that we all know for memory and rightfully so, their Dominator Series of memory has been the flagship for their DDR3 line for some time now. Today we will be looking at a new enthusiast line of memory called Vengeance. The Vengeance line is aggressively priced and with a lower voltage rating of 1.5V instead of the normal 1.65V you should be able to these modules to the limit. Today we will be taking a look at the 8GB 1600MHz dual channel DDR3 kit (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9) and putting it through it’s paces. Read on to see how well them perform!
We are here to yet again do a review on another DDR3 dual channel memory kit. With the standards basically being for DDR3 kits to be 1600Mhz. They are widely used on the AMD AM3 platform to Intel 1156 and 1366 setups as well. DDR3 kits range everywhere from 1066Mhz to the 2500Mhz. When DDR3 1600MHz was coming around to be one of the most popular memory kits, the G.Skill Ripjaws where the best value for the offering. Now today a few months later we are here to put them to the test.
We have seen so many different Speeds of DDR3 ram on the market, ranging anywhere from 1066 Mhz to 2400 Mhz. The mid range ram used by most people is the DDR3 1600 Mhz. Crucial graced us with their new and upcoming ram and having seen the speeds of the ram we previously tested, we were eager to see what we could achieve. This new 4GB DDR3 kit features Crucial’s new Ballisitx heatspreaders and onboard temperature sensors and monitoring software, let’s take a look…
