So far we have taken a look at two different DDR4 kits from Crucial. Up first we had their JEDEC kit, which ran at the DDR4 default speed of 2133 MHz. The next kit we got our hands on was the Ballistix Sport kit that had some nice heatspreaders and ran at 2400 MHz. Now we are ready for Crucial’s top of the line DDR4 kit, which is the Ballistix Elite. The new Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory features a completely redesigned heatspreader from the DDR3 version and speeds that start at 2666 MHz. Today we are going to be taking a look at the BLE4K4G4D26AFEA kit. This kit runs at speeds of 2666 MHz with timings of 16-17-17-36 at 1.2V. Being that this is Crucial’s most high-end kit we expect it to perform pretty well. Let’s see what they can do!
Special thanks to Crucial for providing us with the Ballistix Elite DDR4-2666 16GB Memory Kit to review.

The Ballistix Elite come in a typical memory clamshell package. On the front it lets us know that we have a 16 GB kit and that the kit is the BLE4K4G4D26AFEA. The clamshell package is clear so you can get a good look at the memory before you buy it.
On the back there is some information on the three different types of memory in the Ballistix Series (Sport, Tactical, Elite).
