5 out of 5 eggsVery low profile and solid RAM

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLS2K8G3D1609ES2LX0

Pros: - Very low profile
- Reliable
- As fast as RAM needs to be

Cons: - None so far

Other Thoughts: Ordered 2 sticks (2x 8GB) and ran them through an overnight MemTest with absolutely zero problems. I'm always a bit on edge when ordering RAM and HDDs so it's a great feeling when things just work. I installed mine into an ASRock Z97 Extreme4 and the motherboard detected the correct RAM timings/voltages automatically on boot, no toying around required.

The low profile is very low - the securing latches on the RAM slots are higher than the sticks themselves. This allows for pretty much any choice of CPU cooler without concern of butting against the enormous fins of RipJaws and others. I installed the common Hyper 212 EVO onto my CPU and the fan clears the RAM with ample room to spare. If your CPU cooler won't fit over this RAM then it's not fitting anywhere.

I tax my RAM heavily, loading dense sample libraries and pulling from them in multiple simultaneous instances. This RAM performs as well as I need it to and runs as cool as it needs to be. I've come to the conclusion that the fancy cooling fins of "professional" RAM is all just marketing and glam. Get this RAM and forget about concerns of temperature or high profiles interfering. Hassle free.

5 out of 5 eggsLow profile!

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLS2K8G3D1609ES2LX0

Pros: Low profile, uses less electricity, good timings

Cons: I can't think of anything!

Other Thoughts: I bought this kit for a brand new i5 system. My previous system was a C2Q with DDR2. I recently spent around $150 on a pair of 2GB DDR2 sticks for that system. It failed not long after, so I was really shocked to get two 8GB sticks of DDR3 for almost the same price!

This RAM uses less electricity. RAM doesn't really add a huge amount of heat to a system, but this does reduce the memory's running temperature. I have no plans to OC or play with memory timings, so this is more than sufficient to play FS X, Minecraft, and various MMO's. In fact, having 16 GB available means I can run MASSIVE modpacks in Minecraft, and it can load it all into RAM. 8GB isn't enough, 16 GB is barely enough. Planning on buying another kit to give me 32 GB to play with!

5 out of 5 eggs  Highly recommended

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLS2K8G3D1609ES2LX0

Pros: Very low profile, which helps when using a bulky heat sink. Although even if you aren't using a large air cooler (like myself) I still think it is nice having low profile memory.

Cons: They may be a little difficult to install, but that may have just been my motherboard. But it wasn't too hard.

Other Thoughts: Very good memory

Pros: These modules perform well and look good doing it (and not in a flashy, obnoxious way).
You'll never have to worry about CPU cooler clearance with these.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsTiny but Agile

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLS2K8G3D1609ES2LX0

Pros: I was shocked at how small these sticks were when they arrived. They are almost LEVEL with the top of the slot on my motherboard. Perfect for an ITX build, as they'll allow me to use a larger heatsink that can stick overtop of them.

Not only are they small, but they're fast, and out-perform a lot of larger 1866 models.

Cons: None really. With Crucial you know what you're getting, and it's always great.

Intel of memory, in my experience.

Other Thoughts: Get them?

These sticks are awesome and shockingly small. They aren't kidding when they say Very Low Profile...
