Product: Ballistix Elite DDR4 RAM

I tested the previous Ballistix Elite RAM, and back then I gave it the “Excellent” award. Nothing stays still however and by the time of writing this review we have announcements for AMD Threadripper, and Intel’s new X299. So it was about time for Ballistix to update their Elite RAM, and as we have come to expect from Ballistix there are no huge changes. Visually they are identical to the ones that I tested back in September 2016, but they have had a speed increase, now reaching a maximum speed of 3466MHz, and also now you can get a 64GB kit. Thanks to Ballistix for providing their 4*8GB 3466MHz RAM for this review, and for more information about Ballistix you can visit their website here.
The picture bellow will give you a better idea of the Ballistix Elite DDR4 RAM line up that is currently available. Speeds start at 2666MHz and reach a maximum of 3466MHz with sizes from 4GB and single, dual, and quad kits.
Now I can start this review, and as always, I will begin with the packaging and its contents.

Let’s take a closer look at the packaging of the Ballistix Elite DDR4 RAM and its contents.
The RAM at the time of writing the review was available in single modules of 8GB so as you have guessed there are also three sticks that are not shown in the picture, but their packaging is identical, and as we can see the packaging remains the same when it comes to Ballistix memory.
The front side of the Ballisitx Elite DDR4 RAM. Everything is exactly the same as the previous Ballsistix Elite RAM that I tested, great build quality, and also great looks, but the main difference is you can now obtain them with speeds of up to 3466Mz.
