4 out of 5 eggsRather disappointing RAM

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLT2KIT8G3D1608DT1TX0

Pros: Works OK so far, incl. MEMTEST for a couple of hours

Cons: GIGABYTE GA-Z97-HD3P motherboard reported SPD of only 1333 MHz, not 1600. Had to go to "XMP" setting to get 1600. This strikes me as misrepresentation.

Other Thoughts: Had some RAM a few years ago that would freeze at its nominal rated speed of 1333 MHz, but would work at 1066.

5 out of 5 eggsCrucial! Is there any other?

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLT2KIT8G3D1608DT1TX0

Pros: Look, I been building systems for 15-20 years. Never had a bad Crucial stick of RAM. This RAM is fast.
I realize people have their favorites out there, But Crucial has done me right for a long time, so why even consider changing!

Cons: None! But then I never expect any!

Other Thoughts: Just can't beat Crucial RAM in IMHO. Great RAM at a fair price! Yes you can buy cheaper, buy is it really worth it!
NO not for me!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLT2KIT8G3D1608DT1TX0

Pros: Great RAM for the price. Best latency and frequency I could find, works with no issues.

Cons: Not a big fan of the color, but even with a case with a window it's not really visible anyway.

Other Thoughts: Defaulted to 1333MHz, but very easy to fix.

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLT2KIT8G3D1608DT1TX0

Pros: I haven't run any specific tests to test the performance of this ram, but I can say it has done its job so far. The stats it claims show up in bios, and every game I've installed on this machine has played beautifully.

Not sure what else to say about the RAM other than it's worked well from the first use until now, without any issues. I use the PC everyday. It is on for several hours a day. I've had them well over a year now.

Cons: Lately I've been thinking about getting more just for the hell of it, to max out my PC. But they are almost twice the price I paid for them. So, I wait.

Other Thoughts: 3770k 3.5ghz
7970 HD Radeon 3gb
16gb RAM
120gb SSD HDD
630w 80+ bronze PSU

Everything stock and still plays every game so far between high to max without issue.

5 out of 5 eggsI wanted to impress

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLT2KIT8G3D1608DT1TX0

Pros: Let's face it. Solid price. Excellent CAS at 8-8-8-24. It's really a good value and good bang for the buck. It seems that DDR 1600 is the new default speed so prices have come down. There's 3 vendors I trust with my memory and Crucial is one of them.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsamazing ram

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLT2KIT8G3D1608DT1TX0

Pros: cas 8
fantastic heatsink that keeps it cool without interfering with massive heatsinks.
1600mhz
chips are micron. micron quality.

Cons: ram prices in general are high. gone are the days of $90 16gb 1600mhz kits.

Other Thoughts: I bought this kit to replace my old corsair vengeance kit I had. I am extremely impressed with its quality and speed.

cas 8 is amazing for 1600mhz 16gb kits. I don't know why people buy the other kits in the same price range that are cas 9 - 10.

crucial is micron . you know you're getting fantastic quality with any crucial ram.
