It’s time for Crucial to renew their Ballistix Elite DDR4 RAM and, as can be expected, this can only be seen as positive for us. Faster speeds, bigger sizes, and with prices becoming more and more affordable this makes the transition to Z170 or X99 even easier, and as you remember from my previous review the Ballistix Elite was only available in one speed of 2666MHz.

Now this has changed with the arrival of the updated Ballisits Elite that you can also find at the starting speed of 2666MHz, but now also at two new speeds of 3000Mhz and 3200Mhz. As always they are available in single, dual or quad kits, and in 4GB and 8GB DIMMs. Note that the 3200MHz RAM comes in a 4GB DIMM, and will have to be 4GB, 2x4GB, or 4x4GB configurations. If you need more RAM you should look at the 3000Mhz kit that comes in up to 8GB DIMMs.

The picture bellow will give you a better idea on what is available.

Big thanks to Crucial for sending me the 3000MHz 4x8GB and the 3200MHz 4x4GB kits for this review. You can find more about Crucial and their products by visiting their website, here.

Now I can start this review, and as always I will begin with the packaging and its contents.
