Ballistix Sport LT 8GB (2 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Memory Model BLS2K4G4D240FSB

Pros: This ram works great on my msi z170a pro board. It shows up automatically at 2400 MHz. It's not too tall so it won't interfere with my CPU cooler which is an arctic freezer 7 pro.

Cons: The heat spreaders don't cover the top of the modules totally which isn't a performance issue it's just that when pushing them down into the memory slots it doesn't feel good to your fingers because of the gap between the spreaders. It's not a big issue at all though and probably good that they make them like that.

Other Thoughts: I recommend them highly. Crucial/Micron makes very good quality ram.

5 out of 5 eggs A Nice Motherboard. 12/10/2016

This review is from: MSI Z170-A PRO LGA 1151 Intel Z170 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This motherboard is working great for me so far. I put an i5-6600 in it. I didn't realize I should've bought a 6600k until after paying for the 6600 but it is working great! I also put Ballistix 2400 MHz ram in it and the board automatically detected the ram speed with no adjustment necessary. It's running stable in my rig.

Cons: It seems to be working pretty decently so not many if any real cons just yet. This is a shorter motherboard than a standard ATX but it doesn't seem to be a problem. You should support the side where the 24 pin main power to it connects while plugging in the connector because there are no screws holding it on that side.

Other Thoughts: I recommend a quality PSU. I put my old 430 watt Seasonic with it and I don't think I'll have any troubles. The power supply is critical for keeping motherboards alive and working well. Make sure the 24 pin power cable is pushed all the way in and that you screw the motherboard down snug in your case. I mailed in the MSI $15 rebate form and will see if they follow through with it without trouble.


Pros: I bought this for my PC build/upgrade and am impressed with the speed of it. I didn't get it here on Newegg but got an msi mobe and balistix ram during their Black Friday sale so am reviewing it here. This is my first i5 in awhile after owning an i7 and then a Xeon. It is fast and seems to not get bogged down very easy.

Cons: For the price if you get a great deal on it, none.

Other Thoughts: After getting this I was disappointed that I didn't go with the k version. Not that I overclock but it would've been nice to try one of those out for full power everyday use. Mine is coupled with an intel m.2 600p ssd and 2400 MHz ram and it's pretty fast. It's being used with a gtx 960. The heat sink/fan I use is an Arctic Freezer 7 Pro and it keeps it very cool.
