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!
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!
Samsung are well known as manufacturers of consumer televisions, laptops and other electronics. Samsung’s SSDs have been gathering traction and some rave reviews across the industry, and also picking up steam are Samsung’s offerings to the memory sector. Available in 2GB or 4GB DIMMs, with kits available for 4GB, 8GB and in some locations, 16GB, Samsung have something available for every user. Rated at 1600Mhz at only 1.35v, the kit is designed to fit into the low voltage/green market segment. With stock timings of 11-11-11-28, these kits aren’t aimed at the performance consumer.. but knowing that these DIMMs also support higher voltages, lets see how far we can push them, shall we?

A little over a year ago we took a look at our first Patriot Viper Xtreme memory kit in their 6GB DDR3-2000 kit. These kits are just awesome! Each module in the kit features 6 grams of copper at its core paired with an extruded aircraft-grade aluminum outer shield, which not only is going to keep the modules cool, but makes for a pretty cool look. Today we are taking a look a the Division 4 kit of the Viper Xtreme Series, which is designed specifically for Intel’s X79 platform and 2nd generation Core™ processors. We are checking out the PXQ316G1866ELQK kit, which is a 16GB kit running at 1866MHz with timings of 9-11-9-27 at 1.65V. Read on as we take these for a ride.

With Intel’s X79 chipset we started to see quad channel DDR3 memory. It is crazy to think that in just a short period of time we have gone from dual channel to quad channel memory.

Today we are taking a look at one such kit, the G.Skill RipjawsZ DDR3-2133 16GB quad channel kit (F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH). This kit features four 4GB modules that run at 2133MHz with timings of 9-11-10-28. Read on as we take a look at our first quad channel memory kit.
