It’s not surprising that top performance comes with a steep price, as we’ve come to expect that you get what you pay for. Whether it’s cars or memory modules, conventional notion leads us to believe that top quality and results do not come cheap. This is why there is such a wide range of products available on the market, something to suit just about any preference and budget. So what would happen if you could get top performance at rock-bottom prices?

Well dear reader, today is your lucky day. We will see a paradigm shattered, as we’ve found a set of memory modules that accomplish just that. And yes, the world is still spinning on its proper axis, so things can’t be too crazy when the planets align and something special comes along. Mind you, we certainly can’t complain about saving some extra money in our pursuit of top performance.

Today we are looking at a set of Crucial 4GB DDR3-1333 budget memory modules that look very unassuming and rather uninspiring to be honest, sporting no heatspreaders and looking very……well…..naked. Like the original Olympians that ran naked (how’s that for imagery?) to new records, these Crucial modules may not be much to look at but do they pack some serious punch for achieving very fast speeds as well.

Just how how far can these 1333 MHz sticks can go? Is 1600MHz good enough? No, that’s for chumps. What about 1866MHz? No, that’s for wannabees. Is 2000MHz within reach? Oh, now you’re talking. Let’s find out.
