What customers say about "Key Specs"
Ballistix Tactical 8 GB (DDR4, 3000 MT/s, PC4-24000, DR x8, DIMM, 288-Pin) Memory
  • It is very fast and I immediately noticed a performance gain in phot editing over my old 2000 RAM.
  • Fast, good looking and the usual Crucial quality. A great 8Gb RAM module which goes very fast.
  • For 2666Mhz RAM, I was happy with the overall performance and when combined with the design and value, you really can’t go wrong.
  • Really fast memory card even without overclocking!
  • My PC works faster with this RAM, recommend!
Ballistix Elite 6 GB Kit (8 GB x 2) (DDR4, 2666 MT/s, PC4-21300, Dual Rank x8, DIMM, 288-Pin) Memory
  • No problems or hassles -so far - at 2666. Good quality.
  • Worked well for me. Runs fast and I use two of these kits to give me 32GB of RAM for usage with VM's.
  • Works well. My rig does not support 2666 speeds, but the RAM gets underclocked automatically and works just fine.
  • It delivers everything top of the line ram should, oh also It's obviously fast.
  • Very poor quality and say 3466 but working only on 3000.
