Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3-1333/PC3-10600 4GB Kit BL2KIT25664TA1336 Memory Review


In this Review the performance and the overclocking of a Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC3-10600 CL6 4GB DDR3 kit are tested and compared with 16 Dual Channel kits of previous reviews. Since current AMD processors supports DDR3 memory modules, DDR3 Dual Channel kits got more demand. Because who like to build a new PC system with an AMD Phenom II processor, surely prefer a motherboard with DDR3 Dual Channel support. This OC review will show the difference between DDR3 and DDR2 RAM and the review will also show how far this DDR3 kit can be overclocked on a current AMD 790GX system.

With the introduction of DDR3 support on AMD systems, DDR2 memory modules are still unextinct for AMD, because the integrated memory controller of the new Phenom II CPU supports both DDR3 and DDR2 modules. A newly-made AMD Phenom II system is soon equipped however surely rather with a DDR3 motherboard and DDR3 modules, so that DDR2 Dual Channel kits will be predominantly used for upgrades of existing PC systems.

However, enough development forecasts, let us test the Crucial DDR3 modules.

Thanks for the support …
