Crucial Ballistix PC2-6400 DDR2 1GB Kit

Conclusion

Conclusion

When I first heard that I'd be reviewing a PC2-6400 kit from Crucial, I must admit thinking that the review outcome would be somewhat average. However, I can honestly say that the Crucial Ballistix kit has blown me away. Managing a huge 30%+ overclock (DDR2-1060) while still running timings of 4-4-4-12 is extremely impressive for a kit rated at DDR2-800 - I certainly never thought for a second that these modules would come anywhere close to these speeds.

Of course, these excellent results are only worth their salt if the kit is priced in the same range as other PC2-6400 kits on the market - and I'm please to say it is. After a quick search of Crucial's site, I was able to find these modules retailing for £135.11 - a very good price for memory with low stock timings and massive overclocking potential.

Komplett


Pro's
• Overclocks to DDR2-1060 @ 4-4-4-12.
• Maximum overclock of DDR2-1120.
• Well packaged (if a little boring).
• Competitive pricing.

Con's
• Umm...heatspreader design may not appeal to some people.

You rock sox Jim, awesome review mate... I must say that's some great RAM as well, good to see Crucial utilizing the D9 IC's for their Ballistix lineup. Very odd about the mismatched IC's though, that's a little scary to me Don't know what happened there.

And I for one like the new heatspreaders, I think they look sweet!

Yeah that was really wierd about the IC's, and i must admit thinking that they wouldnt show much OC potential as a result - but quite the oposite
