Ballistix Tactical 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT2K8G3D1608ET3LX0
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 1600MHz 8-8-8-24 latency 1.35V AFTER overclocking manually with XMP profile #1. 1600MHz 8-8-8-24 1.50V after overclocking with XMP profile #2. 1300MHz 9-9-9-24 1.50V with JEDEC profile.

Cons: Base frequency is not 1600MHz but 1300MHz with 9-9-9-24 latency with JEDEC profile. I had to change the frequency manually in BIOS to overclock them. Why should I overclock them to get advertised speed?

Other Thoughts: I purchased two 8GB modules as a promotion, which was cheaper than any other DDR3-1600 CL9 modules. So I can't complain too much but I think I got what I paid for.

Pros: Low price.

Cons: Poor speed. 95MB/s write, 150MB/s read. It's the same speed with 7200rpm Segate 1TB HDD.

Pros: I bought this when it was a "weekend special" deal for 40 bucks after rebate + free shipping. No games played so I can't talk about the performance other than Windows Experience Index was 6.8 for windows aero and 6.8 for 3D gaming graphics on Windows 7 & Intel Q9550. When not doing any 3D the GPU clock steps down to 165MHz(GPU)/300MHz(Memory).

Cons: Only con really the fan is not as quiet as other people write. I was expecting much quiet from the reviews I had read. It is louder than of the other fans in my system. The 2-wires fan will neither correctly display the fan speed nor respond to fan control in ATI Catalyst Control Center. It spins at constantly 100% high speed.

Some video cards may have a regulator built onto the PCB which will control the fan. However most cards you'll find the controller is built onto the fan. Cards like this will usually use a 4 wire fan 3rd and 4th wire used for sensing and speed control. So in most cases if the fan is only 2 wires, it will run at 100% since it only has power and ground.

MSI's official answer for this issue was "FAN control is N/A for this VGA. The FAN speed always will be the same."

Other Thoughts: It doesn't come with the DVI-HDMI adapter, but I'm glad it supports audio signal through DVI connector. With the use of a DVI-HDMI adapter you can get both audio and video transferred simultaneously.
