5 out of 5 eggsUndervolted and speedy

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT2K4G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: I bought these for a possible mini-ITX mobile computing solution. The low voltage and high speed gave me the possible head room needed to under volt...see below.

Also much smaller than they look. Definitely a plus if you have a monster heat sink.

They don't get hot at all. I am not sure if the heat spreader was added for looks and resale purposes. Even at 1.35v they were only warm to the touch. Passes memtest at 1.30v.

Cons: Heat spreader may be just for looks. Mine do not get hot at all, with no case fans...

Other Thoughts: In the Antec ISK100 case there is only 1 fan, the CPU fan. These heat spreaders are probably just to add bulk and dimension. They really are the smallest I have seen.

I have not tried to overclock these. I am sure 90% of buyers are going that route, with which I am no help this time. I was able to drop down to 1.30v. at 1.29v memtest would throw errors. Even when I widened the gap massively to 11-11-11, 2T and dropped it down to 1033, I could only get down to 1.27v. I suspect the IC needs a preset voltage to keep the memory charged.

it may have been possible to under volt significantly with just 1 DIMM, but there is memory out there already rated for 1.25V.

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT2K4G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: My ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 motherboard immediately recognized the XMP profile at 1.35v / 1600. I removed my old AData XPG CAS9 ram before getting started. Windows 7 x64 rating for memory jumped from 5.9 to 7.1 No difficulties snapping RAM into their slots.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsThoughts after 1 year of ownership

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT2K4G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: Very responsive. The combination of the 1600 MHz speed and 8 ns CAS latency make this memory extremely fast and low latency. The low voltage is nice because of the added headroom for overclocking, though I ditched my memory overclock in favor a higher stability. Don't get me wrong, these will overclock like champs, but I didn't notice a great difference in speed with the applications I generally use. I was able to get these on sale as well which made them even more enticing. The low profile also makes it easier to use some CPU coolers and configurations, but I haven't had a problem with a CM Hyper 212 EVO even with full height memory since they aren't that wide.

Cons: Doesn't cook me dinner.

Other Thoughts: I have been using these for over a year now and have had no issues. The only thing I regret is not buying the 16 GB kit, but by the time I upgrade I'll probably buy DDR4 anyway. The price to performance ratio on this memory was so good that I couldn't justify getting anything else.

My build (built 2013):
4670k - CM Hyper 212 EVO
ASUS Z87-Pro
Samsung 840 128 GB
Radeon HD 7790
NZXT H230

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT2K4G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: Low profile, low voltage RAM with colorful yellow heat sinks and Crucial quality. Easily loaded the XMP profile in the BIOS of an ASRock 990FX Extreme4. The packaging is reusable and doesn't require the jaws of life to open. Made in the United States.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My family has purchased two sets of this RAM; one was bought over a year ago for my father's build, and the second set was recently acquired for mine.

5 out of 5 eggs7.9 WEI no fuss no muss at 1.35v

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT2K4G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: This ram kit has given me exactly what I was looking for to go with my Intel E-1230 v2 processor, namely WEI 7.9 memory index performance at 1.35v.

Cons: Not really a con, but, after trying a little overclocking at no more than 1.4 volts, I was unable to get anywhere (even lower latency or higher bandwidth) - so I gave up and went back to the XMP profile settings.

Other Thoughts: Since I'm just running one pair of sticks, I did change to the 1N command rate.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT2K4G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: Absolutely fantastic ram, has done everything I asked of it and more. Not as flashy as some ram but I like the orange color. I overvolted to 1.65v, running without error at DDR3 2200 with 9-9-9-24 for timings.

Cons: Only con I can think of is Newegg is out currently so I can't order another set.

Other Thoughts: System:
i5-3350P @ 3.7GHz
ASrock Z77 Extreme3
Sapphire HD7950
Seasonic 850W PSU

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Memory

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT2K4G3D1608ET3LX0

Pros: I've been using Crucial Balistix (DDR2 Tracers) in 2 rigs for the past 4 years and loved them. My wifes set died and after contacting Crucial about the problem they were RMA'd for a free replacement under Crucials Lifetime Warranty.

This set was pulled from my wifes rig for use in my new build (listed below) this past weekend for temp use until I bought memory for my rig. Needless to say these are staying in my rig and I'm going to order a second set..

Have them running 24/7 @ 1886mhz on stock voltage and have had them up as far as 1960mhz so far and they run very smooth and take everything I dish out.

I would recommend these to anyone looking to overclock they're system. I went to the Crucial site and used the memory match and these were the only one's to pop up as Guaranteed-compatible with the ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0.

Great Ram...

Cons: Not really a con, but I'm wanting another set and Neweeg is out....

Other Thoughts: Rig:
FX-8350 @ 4.7ghz
Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
8gb's of Crucial Balistix Tacticals LP
Asus 7850-DC2-2GD5
