5 out of 5 eggswhere all others have failed

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model BLE2KIT8G3D1869DE1TX0

Pros: These sticks up and ran at 1866 9 9 9 24 1T in my super -finicky i72700K / ASUS P8Z77-V PRO motherboard. WEI memory index 7.9. Not much else to say. Just fantastic rock-solid performance. Temperature monitoring software super-handy...have yet to see the kit get over 38*C. Default warning condition is default set to 60*C.

Cons: a bit tall, but, -boy the heat spreaders are effective.

Other Thoughts: I fully expected to have to loosen some of the timings to get them to go but they never gave me any reason to. This older Sandy-Bridge CPU definitely heats up more running the memory overclock, even though all other settings are stock (with the exception LLC. LLC for RAM is set to 'Medium.')

5 out of 5 eggsNice RAM

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model BLE2KIT8G3D1869DE1TX0

Pros: Pretty tight timings for the price at 1866, other memory in this price range either requires more voltage or has looser timings to reach these speeds. It actually works at the advertised speeds, too, which is great.

Cons: For some reason my Gryphon Z78 board didn't detect it at 1866, instead it kept configuring it to 1333 via XMP. The timings and everything else were correct, just the speed wasn't. I manually reset it to 1866 and it's been running fine ever since. Might be an issue with the board BIOS.

The heatsinks are tall and, honestly, kinda sharp. Be aware of this when ordering, I can see it possibly causing trouble with large air cooled heatsinks.

4 out of 5 eggsReliable...Eventually

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model BLE2KIT8G3D1869DE1TX0

Pros: Very reliable after initial hiccup (see below) and I am very pleased with the performance of the kit in my rig. I am very rough on my system and its ability to hold up is admirable.

Cons: Okay, this is a bit of a gripe with the manufacturer, but bear with me. The original set I got failed within three months. the RMA was smooth, though it did leave me without a computer for a while since i had to wait for the replacement.

I was nor surprised at this procedure as the kit from my last system also had to be traded out. So all I can say is that your first set will probably fail, but the replacement will be rock solid.

Other Thoughts: I still buy from Crucial, but just accept that RMAs are part of the process of getting memory at this point.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank for the feedback and comments. We're glad the replacement set is working well for you.

For future reference, we do offer cross shipment but it does require a CC# secured, this option can help reduce your down time.

Thanks again for using Crucial!

Just a quality product that makes my machine fly!

1 out of 5 eggsOn second thought

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model BLE2KIT8G3D1869DE1TX0

Pros: None

Cons: After the first failed pair, I managed to go through not 1 but 2 pairs from a local store. The last pair I tried ALMOST worked. ALMOST as in this time, only 1 of the modules had between 3 and 5 errors per entire pass.
This was a far cry from the non-functioning pair tested right before it, but a regular result of more than 0 errors is still a fail in RAM.

Other Thoughts: Gave Crucial a good chance, and I am thoroughly NOT impressed.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

Thanks for the feedback and we're sorry to hear our memory was causing you any issues. It's unusual to have issues with multiple pairs of memory so we'd like to help if possible. Please contact us online or at 1-800-336-8896 and we will work with you. Please let us know your system configuration, specific software, and errors and we will work with you on a solution.

1 out of 5 eggsMemtest fail

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model BLE2KIT8G3D1869DE1TX0

Pros: Looked good on paper, got the pair on sale for a decent price.

Cons: Rarely purchased Crucial, and now I have more reason to avoid - Already showing 201 errors 43% through the FIRST pass of Memtest @ correct stock settings.

Other Thoughts: The holidays show now mercy with RAM.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

Please contact our support online or at 1-800-336-8896 and we'll help with configuration, troubleshooting or RMA if necessary. We offer a limited lifetime warranty on our DRAM products and your satisfaction is important to us.

5 out of 5 eggsgood for the a10 5800k

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model BLE2KIT8G3D1869DE1TX0

Pros: i got this ram for my a10 - 5800k and it gives it good performance when it comes to gaming

16gb ddr3 at 1866

Cons: price

Other Thoughts: i got this ram for gaming and video editing i haven't tried to edit videos with the ram yet but so far how well it works with my cpu i bet it'll be fast for rendering videos

the ram kinda sticks out allot not much so if your gonna be using a heatsink that'll go near the ram thats something to look out for

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Memory

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model BLE2KIT8G3D1869DE1TX0

Pros: XMP 1.3, 1866 MHz, Low Latency, super cool operation, well built and looks great.

No more pagefile for me.

Cons: Price, but then again this isn't your bargain brand $50 memory.

Other Thoughts: I replaced my 1866 8GB Corsair Vengence set. I no longer have trouble with it running stable 1866 MHz and my CPU droped 6 celcius average temp on all cores. From 70c to 65c or lower using intel burn test max setting.

Very happy. Crucial now has a dedicated buyer.

5 out of 5 eggsSabertooth R2

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model BLE2KIT8G3D1869DE1TX0

Pros: Works out of the package as advertised for the Asus Sabertooth R2 motherboard. Set the BIOS for 1866 and it simply worked. Using the AMD Overdrive utility to Overclock also works without issue. Running a "mild" overclock at 4ghz with an 3.6ghz 990FX chip.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Using Crucial H80 CPU cooler at mid range setting for 4ghz clock speed with moderate temperature well under tolerance range.

Pros: XMP Profile picked up first boot in bios. Rock solid stability. Quality heatsink and they match my MB!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Price is a bit high, but lower then other high end 16Gb kits.

Running VM's you can't have too much ram.
