These modules are called “Elite” and for good reason! Not only is this ram super-fast at 3600 MHz it performed quite well in all of our tests. You are not going to find many memory kits that operate at this high of speed at just 1.35V, but this kit does! On top of that you can definitely push this memory well past that. In our testing we were able to get the kit up to 3900 MHz with just a simple voltage bump to 1.4V. That is with the same XMP timings of 16-18-18-38! Depending on the motherboard / CPU combo you are running you could take this memory even further.
With this memory you don’t have to worry about the memory getting hot either. It has some of the beefiest heatsinks we’ve seen on memory and you can tell just by picking up these modules. While some might not like that there are no lights on this kit, but we think it is very fitting. Ballistix wants the Elite kit to remain sleek and stylish and honestly the all black design will look good in pretty much any build. We applaud Ballistix for offering a high-end kit without RGB lighting.
Right now this kit is selling at our favorite online retailer for $148.99, which is on the high-end of kits in this range, but you cannot argue with the quality and performance of this kit. Plus it is backed with a limited lifetime warranty. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Ballistix Elite DDR4-3600 16GB Memory Kit a 9 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award!
