1 out of 5 eggsRam unstable

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLT4G3D1608DT1TX0

Pros: great looking specs ->on paper.

1600mhz, great advertized timings especially for the low voltage.

BUT-

What they dont say is that its that is actually 8-8-8-24 with
2t command rate. This is in the XMP profile. That is a shame because the penalty of 2t vs 1t takes away the advantage of this tighter timings.

Basically, 1600mhz 8-8-8 2t is not any faster than 1600mhz 9-9-9 1t. Actually the latter would probably be better.
So the great looking specs are just that. The inability to run them at 1t is a shame.

Cons: I had bought 3 sticks for my x58 platform when i got an xeon x5670 for it.

Everything looked like it was fine but as the days went on, it showed signs of stability issues. Having just installed used CPU too, i thought perhaps that was the issue.
Turned out it was the ram, I wasted a lot of time because i just assumed this ram was good.

I tried every configuration. XMP on and even manual set up.
This 1600mhz 8-8-8 ram wouldnt pass a stability test at 1333mhz 9-9-9. That was very surprising.

Out of the 3 sticks, I can say for sure only 1 will run at its rated specs. One stick wont verify at any speed.

I never bought Ram that was no good but i guess thats what i get for trying a brand i dont usually buy

Other Thoughts: CHECK YOUR NEW RAM WITH MEM TEST OR OTHER STABILITY/STRESS TESTING APPS.

I wasted a lot of time assuming that this ram was okay. Guys remember, just because your PC will boot and seem okay doesnt mean the ram is functioning properly. Windows will try to work around errors.
Trust me, you do not want your PC to have stability issues. And bad ram will cause crashed and blue screens out of the blue. You may not see it right off the bat and you may never noticed until some important data is compromised from corrupted memory.

SO dont make the mistake i made and assumed everything was okay. Luckily I found this issue before the month was up so i can still RMA.....but it was just barely.

So run a real check on your new ram to make sure its stable. There is no way my sticks are the only ones that were bad right out of the box.

I wanted to like this ram, i really had high hopes...........

But, what a headache it turned out to be instead

5 out of 5 eggsFollow-up to previous review

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLT4G3D1608DT1TX0

Pros: Crucial support worked with me to diagnose the problem as belonging to Dell's BIOS. It is not able to modify the XMP settings. It's not an issue with the memory.

Cons: Not able to achieve the full speed of DD3-1600, only DDR3-1333. It's the fault of the Dell BIOS though.

Other Thoughts: I could change the speed with a third party application, but I'd have to do that every time I restarted. Bah, perhaps I'll find a better solution in time. I'm satisfied with sticking with the full 8GB of memory at the consequence of both of my sticks of RAM running at DDR3-1333. Since the RAM does work, and the fault belonging to Dell, I've decided to upgrade the product review to five stars. Dude, I shouldn't of gotten a Dell. Eh, it's the family computer. The speed difference isn't significant enough not to be happy with the result.

3 out of 5 eggsA bit dissapointed

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLT4G3D1608DT1TX0

Pros: It's working despite it's lower than expected speeds. Nice heat sink.

Cons: Either Crucial or CPU-Z is lying:
This memory is reported as PC3-12800 (800MHz) on the newegg product page, however, CPU-Z is showing it as PC3-10700h (667MHz).
The ram that came with the computer is reported to be running at PC3-12800 (800MHz)

Other Thoughts: Disappointed with the lesser than expected speed, but it'll work and I'll live with it.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

Thank you for your feedback. For some reason your system is booting up with failsafe speed of DDR3-1333. Please contact our support at 1-800-336-8896 or online at www.crucial.com/help and we can assist you. You will likely have to enable XMP Profile 1 in your BIOS in order to get the rated speeds and timings, we can assist with this and other troublshooting, so please call with your system configuration (Motherboard, BIOS version, CPU etc..) and we will help.

Regards,
Crucial
