5 out of 5 eggsthe ram everyone should have

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT8G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: very low profile, means this will work with any big high end air cooler. noctua d14, d15, Megahalem, you name it, it will work with it.

Ram timing is very flexible, i can get it down to 7-7-7-18 at 1600mhz 1.35v no problem on my x58 ud7 board. the max i got my pair up to was 2100mhz, i hit my mobo's limit before the ram, perhaps it will go higher, i'll find out when i upgrade later down the road.

Cons: price, only 2 years ago you can get 16gb for the price they charge for 8gb now. the industry say some sort of "fire" at a "factory" made the price went up, but we all know its price fixing :rolleyes:

Other Thoughts: don't buy into marketing gimmick of tall fancy rams, this outperforms my 2 other pair of corsair dominator in timing and voltage it's not even funny.

at first i try so hard to get a pair of used samsung wonder ram. but this can pretty much match the very sought after samsung green sticks.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Value/Price

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT8G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: Solid construction.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Bought two DIMMs for a Mini-ITX server build. The CAS latency is pretty good for this series of RAM. The heatsink is low profile, so you don't have to worry about overhead dimensions.

5 out of 5 eggsQuick and Slim

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT8G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: This stick paired with my 4670k are an amazing combo. These sticks fit on my miniITX case almost right under the CPU heatsink. There is pleanty of manuverabilty with the low profile and a CAS latency of 8 all the way across is fantastic. These sticks are showing correct timing every time I put load on. Fantastic.

Cons: Yet to find any except the packaging. Needed a crowbar to get into mine.

Other Thoughts: It's quick and crucial is a great company. Don't buy into gimicks with higher speed RAM until the CPU Ram comtrollers can use them natively.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT MEMORY

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT8G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: Great memory. Bought 4 of these for a new build for a total 32GB. Memtest86 = About 34 hours and had no errors.

Bought it for $65 each. Good buy

Cons: None so far. I was looking at this memory for a long time but waited for the reviews to come in. The lowest price I saw this go for was around $50 each.

Other Thoughts: Build for Video & PHOTO Editing / GAMING:

-MSI Z87-GD65
-Intel Core i7-4770K
-EVGA GTX 780
-Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB x 4

2 out of 5 eggsSerious quality controll issue

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT8G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: very low profile, CAS8, 1.35V. Looks great. Newegg's service is great!

Cons: Terrible quality control. Exchanged 3 times before getting a module to work on at advertised speed: 1600, CAS8, 1.35V. I have Asrock Z87E-ITX -C2 stepping bios v2.1/2.3, & 4770K. 1st module failed at 1333 and causes blue screen at 1600. 2end module failed at 1600 but works at 1333. 3ird module has a few errors @1600 1.35v after running over night with memtest+ 5.01. 4th module so far running overnight without an error. I'll let it continue to run for a whole day before I declare "OK".

Other Thoughts: I do not understand why all the praise from Newegg reviews. Either I am having extremely bad luck or many are running at 1333 or at 1.5V. For a while, I was wondering if I did any thing wrong in installing and settings for the module. Anyhow, I am so glad that I bought from Newegg. They stand behind what the sell and let me exchange these bad modules.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry if our modules have caused you issues. It could be a number of things preventing you from running at 1.35V (assuming 1.5V worked fine and you're using the provided XMP profiles). We test across many motherboards and platforms at rated speeds, timings and voltages, it could be your board and our memory is just slightly on the edge case of 1.35V support meaning it is more sensitive at 1.35V and you've had to try various modules to find one that passes.

Please contact our support at 1-800-336-8896 option # 2 or online at www.crucial.com/help if you need further assistance. We fully stand behind our products and offer a limited lifetime warranty on DRAM

Regards,
Crucial

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT8G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: Installed 2 sets on an ASUS M89AGTDPro and it works fine. Not blindingly fast but didn't expect it to be. Well worth the money

Cons: None so far

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT8G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: Bought this memory December 2013. I was debating on getting 2x 4gb memory just in case of a memory failure so that still have one working, but I decided just to keep this. Works perfectly no complaints so far!

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsNeeds slightly higher voltage

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT8G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: Fast, low profile

Cons: At the advertised 1.35 voltage and 8-8-8-24 timing I experienced a lot of memory access (C0000005) errors while gaming.

Since increasing the voltage a little things have been stable.

This is the first time I've had to adjust memory voltage to be able to game and I would rather have been able to use it at the advertised voltage/timings.

Other Thoughts: I'm glad I purchased this ram.

1 out of 5 eggsCrucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB Review

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT8G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: Low Profile, and lowest CAS that you can find for DDR3 1600. Easy to overclock.

Cons: I ordered 4 sticks for a client build. 3 of 4 were bad and failed memtest86+ with errors. I sent back and Newegg quickly processed my RMA. I received 3 sticks and this time 2 of 3 were failed memtest86+. Sending them back now.

Also, the motherboard would not boot if I choose 8-8-8-24 @1.35v. But @1.5v it has no issue. I could also OC it to 9-9-9-24 with no issues. Just that the failure rate is too high and I would never use this memory again. I have used the regular size Sports (not the ones with high heatsink) and they work great, so I got these when they were on sale thinking I could OC for my client. So I ma weeks late for the build and end up giving my client 25% off the price for the memory.

Other Thoughts: I have many cruciall products such as the M500 SSD. I have 2 960GB and 1 480GB, and various Crucial memory. They are quite reliable but I think this low profile low voltage tactical memory is gimmicks. Not sure if I got a bad batch but I will stay away from Crucial for a while for my client builds. Kudos to Newegg for prompt RMA processing and replacement.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry to hear our memory has caused you any issues. This many parts causing errors is highly unusual, it sounds like a compatibility issue or configuration issue, please contact at 1-800-336-8896 if we can still help you out. Your configuration information would be valualbe to us especially if there is a certain board that requres a BIOS update or special BIOS configuration.

Regards,
Crucial
