Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP and Sport VLP 1600MHz DDR3 Memory Kit Review
Feb 14,2013 0 Comments
I started writing about DDR3 memory modules in May 2007 before the supporting motherboards came out, so it takes quite a bit to get me excited about memory after writing about it for nearly six years of doing so. In fact, buying a memory kit is one of the more boring aspects of building or upgrading a PC as they are all so similar. Most consumers buy a memory kit based on price and how it looks after figuring out what speed memory they want to go with. Today, I’m looking at two 16GB (2x8GB) 1600MHz DDR3 memory kits from Crucial that are a little different from the dozens of other kits at this very popular memory speed. The kits that I’m about to show you both have low profile designs and run at just 1.35V! No other brand has a memory kit on the market that has both of these features, so it is interesting to see Crucial breaking the ‘norm’ and doing something different than all the other memory companies.
The two memory kits that we will be looking at today are the Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP (BLT2K8G3D1608ET3LX0) and the Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP (BLS2K8G3D1609ES2LX0). Both kits are similar, which is why I’m reviewing them together, but they are slightly different.
