5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLS2KIT8G3D1609DS1S00

Pros: Easy installation

Cons: You need to go into your bios and make sure the Memory Clock speed is set correctly. Then, download the CPU-Z utility to verify that its running at the correct speed. Window 10 Task Manager is unreliable for reading clock speed.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty nice

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLS2KIT8G3D1609DS1S00

Pros: Just another DDR3 16 gb memory set, works well, ram doesn't differentiation very much from eachother, this looks nice in my build though.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I would buy something else with a little more "flash" to it. if you're looking for fancy looking memory this isnt it, but it certainly gets the job done well.

5 out of 5 eggsNever disappointed by Crucial memory

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLS2KIT8G3D1609DS1S00

Pros: * Low profile, which is great for large aftermarket CPU coolers that may hang over the memory slots of various motherboards.
* Lack of bling for the heatsinks - functional yet not overbearing
* Runs at advertised timings without a hitch
* Value

Cons: * I didn't initially buy these.

Other Thoughts: The profile and performance of the Ballistix Sport memory strikes the right balance for any given system that utilizes DDR3-1600 memory. Packaging was very easy to open and installation was non-eventful. After installing this memory, I was able to install a second fan on a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ CPU cooler without issue. While other brands may offer more aggressive timings or support overlocking, the gigantic heatsinks/spreaders on those memory modules will interfere with air cooling solutions for a myriad of aftermarket CPU heatsinks. If you have a non-K model processor and are looking to add a significant amount of memory to your system, this memory is the way to go!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat DDR3 ... Manual Overclocking !

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLS2KIT8G3D1609DS1S00

Pros: Replaced 4x4GB Samsung dimms (11-11-11-28) on DX79SR Extreme, with two sets of 2x8GB Crucial (9-9-9-24), and they worked like a charm with base settings.

Cons: A bit slower than the 3 years old Samsung Memory; using the same motherboard and CPU. It was hard to overclock the RAM, since the BIOS does not adjust timing automatically. Manual mode works up to 2000 MHz with 11-11-11-28 timing, with CPU i7-3960X running at cool 4.85GHz.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, and bad

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLS2KIT8G3D1609DS1S00

Pros: When this works, it is very good RAM. I bought 2 sets of 16gb (2x8's), 32gb total for 2 diff machines. I used one set of 16 to Upgrade my main Gaming rig. I put the other in a new Home Media Server / NAS. It's lightning fast RAM, solid, worked great.

Until it didn't.

Eventually, my Gaming rig suddenly started stuttering, blue-screening, and rebooting randomly. First looked for all the usual culprits for a daily use PC, all clean. Checked the drives, all good, no problems.

Checked RAM and had too many errors to count. I swapped out the sticks between my rig and my Media Server to test. Quickly verified the bad sticks were indeed causing all my problems.

It's probably been too long for an RMA so I'm stuck having to buy new RAM when I thought I was buying a brand that would keep me from having this problem, which is common w lesser known brands.

Avoid the Ballistix Sport. Grab something else for reliability.

Cons: As others have mentioned, there seems to be some Quality Control issues going on at Crucial lately. Especially over the last 2-3 years. Which is sad bc Crucial had always been my go-to brand when I want rock solid reliability. Those days are over for now.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat DDR3 RAM at a great price!

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLS2KIT8G3D1609DS1S00

Pros: Really good quality high speed DDR3 RAM. Simple looking. Easy to swap out with old RAM.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I popped this RAM into my system to upgrade from 8 GB of slower RAM (10-10-10 27) to this faster 16 GB's of RAM. I'm using a BIOSTAR TZ68K+ LGA 1155 Intel Z68 motherboard, and my BIOS immediately recognized it at 9-9-9 24 at 1.5 volts on first boot. Windows 10 picked it up on first boot as well. I have noticed graphic editing apps and audio conversion apps are much faster. Newer games should benefit from the faster RAM, too. Very happy with the upgrade.

5 out of 5 eggsBang for your Buck

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLS2KIT8G3D1609DS1S00

Pros: Excellent quality at a fair price. I bought the 16 Gb kit with two 8 Gb modules. They are working perfectly. For only $75 you can't go wrong with a name brand like Crucial. Great value.

Cons: None
