Introduction

F

aster…Faster…Faster! – That’s what we all want from our CPU and desktop memory. Blazing fast chips often generate tremendous heat. Because of this, oversized air coolers and memory heat-spreaders are quickly becoming the norm. We’ve been seeing huge air coolers and blazing fast RAM with skyscraper tall heatsink introduced for the past few years. The oversized footprint CPU coolers are taking over the RAM’s real-estate and definitely don’t play well together in the same “sandbox.”

That’s just part of the reason why Crucial introduced its latest low profile dual-channel DDR3 memory kits, like the Ballistix Tactical LP and the Sport VLP series. The Ballistix Tactical LP targets the gamers, enthusiasts and power users. The Ballistix Sport VLP lineup is targeted for the mainstream. Both Tactical LP and Sport VLP are available in 4GB and 8GB density modules with the frequency of 1600MHz. For timing, CAS 8 is for the Tactical and CAS 9 for the Sport series, and both only need 1.35v to operate.

Today we have both 16GB kits of the Tactical LP and the Sport VLP DDR3 PC3-12800 sitting on our test bench ready for the test drive….read more to find out how these modules perform.

 

 

“The Crucial brand represents high-quality memory that has been qualified and approved by all major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and unlike many of our competitors, we test 100 percent of the modules that head out our doors. We back our products with industry-leading warranties, and we strive to expand our offerings to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers—customers just like you.”
