The Ballistix performance series memory has proven popular for their stock performance, overclock-ability, quality and the ever changing style employed by Crucial. Recently we had the pleasure of reviewing the DDR4 Ballistix Elite 2666MHz kit, these featured beautifully crafted all black industrial heat spreaders with lines so rigid they invoked the presence of the Military Elite. This time around we will be looking at the latest addition to the Ballistix family, the Ballistix Sport LT. These should land right between the Sport model and the higher end Elite kits, hopefully netting us the best of both worlds, tighter timings and high clocks

iostar has released multiple "Hi-Fi" models over the last few years that were designed to fill the mainstream and multimedia space. With a heavy focus on audio reproduction and connectivity these board have done well in this arena.
