With the introduction of Intel’s Z170 chipset the mainstream finally gets their hands on DDR4 memory.

Kingston’s HyperX FURY line was introduced with DDR3 and made its way to DDR4 in quad-channel kits for X99. Now we have dual-channel kits available in 16GB and 8GB capacities. The HyperX FURY DDR4 modules have a sleek heatspreader matched with an all black PCB, which looks awesome.

Crucial Ballistix Sport Low Profile DDR3-1600 16GB Memory Kit Review

Not that long ago we took a look at <a href="http://thinkcomputers.wpengine.com/crucial-ballistix-tactical-low-profile-ddr3-1600-16gb-memory-kit-review/">Crucial’s Ballistix Tactical Low Profile memory</a>.  Today we are checking out the <strong>Ballistix Sport Low Profile memory</strong>.  Both of these memory kits solve the dilemma of an aftermarket CPU cooler covering up your memory slots.  This kit is a low profile kit meaning it is going to fit below most aftermarket CPU coolers and be out of the way.  There are not that many choices when it comes to low profile memory so that fact that Crucial is offering their Ballistix line in low profile versions is great.  The memory we are taking a look at today is the 16GB (8GB x 2) kit running with timings of 9-9-9-24 at 1.35v (BLS2K8G3D1609ES2LX0).  Read on as we check out this memory!

Crucial Ballistix Tactical Low Profile DDR3-1600 16GB Memory Kit Review

When it comes to performance memory there are quite a few choices.  The one thing you always want to consider is the actual height of the modules.  Many aftermarket CPU coolers actually may cover the memory slots on your motherboard.  This means you could be limited to what memory you can use.  This has actually been a problem for quite a while now.  The only real solution was to go with a watercooling setup, but many people do not want to deal with that.  Crucial has finally solved the problem by <a href="http://thinkcomputers.wpengine.com/crucial-releases-ballistix-low-profile-memory/">releasing Low Profile versions</a> of both their Ballistix Tactical and Ballistix Sport memory.  Today we are taking a look at the <strong>Ballistix Tactical LP memory</strong>, more specifically the BLT2K8G3D1608ET3LX0 kit.  It is a 16GB kit running at 1600MHz with timings of 8-8-8-24 at 1.35v.  Let’s take a look!

G.Skill TridentX DDR3-2400 8GB Dual Channel Memory Kit Review

This time around we’re taking a look at G.Skill’s TridentX series. Starting at 2133Mhz and going all the way up to 2800Mhz, the TridentX Series is brutally fast. A black and red theme well suited to ASUS’ ROG series or ASRock’s Fatal1ty series, it looks awesome if you’re the kind of person who likes oversized or extreme styling. The kit G.Skill have sent us is the middle of the spectrum; 2400Mhz, yet it’s only CAS 10 - speeds, with high speeds with such low latency this kit promises to be a strong performer. Lets check it out!
