Crucial DDR5-4800 32GB Memory Kit Review

With the introduction of Intel’s Alder Lake platform we’ve been introduced to DDR5 memory. DDR5 memory seems to be one of the harder pieces to get to complete an Alder Lake build. The lack of supply along with the higher price is one of the reasons we’ve seen Z690 motherboards come in models that support DDR5 and others that support DDR4. This allows early adopters to still take advantage of the Alder Lake platform without having to wait for DDR5 modules to become available. Our first DDR5 memory kit comes from Crucial, which is their CT2K16G48C40U5 kit. This 32GB kit runs at 4800 MHz with timings of 40-39-39-77 at 1.1V. This kit is as basic as it comes with no heatspreader or RGB lighting, but it will allow you to get that new Alder Lake system up and running. Let’s take a look!

Special thanks to Crucial for providing us with the 32GB DDR5-4800 Memory Kit to review.
