Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3 PC3-12800 6GB kit

Memory Benchmarks



SiSoftware Sandra
(the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC. Each of the benchmarks below were run a total of five times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average being calculated from the remaining three.

 
 


Everest
 
Focusing mainly on software and hardware information reporting, Everest also comes with a benchmark utility suitable for testing the read, write and latency performance of the memory subsystem. Each of these benchmarks were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average calculated from the remaining 3.
 
 
 

 
 
Super PI
 
SuperPI is the benchmark of choice for many overclockers. It's lightweight to download and can give a quick indication on how good a system is at number crunching. Once again, testing was performed a total of 5 times, with an average being calculated from the middle three results.
 
 
 

 
Results Observations
 
Surprisingly, the Crucial kit seemed to perform slightly worse than the other kits on test in the synthetic memory tests apart from SiSoft Sandra which placed the Crucial kit in top spot in the latency test which was surprising as it was running slightly higher latencies than the Mushkin kit. The Crucial kit did however make up ground in the 3 runs of SuperPI, narrowly losing out to the Mushkin kit but faster than both the Corsair and Patriot kits.

Let's see how we got on with the run of 3D Benchmarks...

They look nice.

Would prefer them in red though.

Jim - get some to match your bloodrage.

These or the Corsair GT's are on my list for sure

Oh crap Jim now has to choose between Dominator GT or these. Both are good so go for the performance ones lol.

For aesthetics then this is the way to go.

Bit pricey tho'.

I ordered a set of the DDR2 for my AM2 system on monday, so as long as they preform as nicely as this lot I will be happy.. and the LEDs look so great.

Too bad that the chips don't have red led's instead of the green.

The red would be perfect for your case!

Do I see another mod happening here?

Haha even I know my limits. Unsoldering those tiny LED's using a gas soldering iron is NOT a good idea

Just keep a fan running on it. It will be OK.

One can only assume that the different coloured heatsinks (Red, Blue and Green) would be matched by the same colour LED's but don't quote me on that.



By that I meant that red would have red led's, blue would have blue. I would like to think so anyway.

They look good in lellow

When i go i7

These are noted!

I still think Patriot's Viper Series Heatspreaders looks better than gimmicky LEDs. What do they do to help the memory perform better?

They dont, they help the theme of your build

They perform well and look good.
