Crucial Ballistix PC4000 2GB Memory Review


Crucual Ballistix Meets 2GB Capacities

Crucial Ballistix PC4000

As memory prices reach more reasonable levels, 2GB kits are starting to show up more and more on the market. For about the same price as a quality 1GB kit cost a year ago, you can outfit your system with a 2GB kit and be ready to tackle power hungry games such as Battlefield 2 and F.E.A.R.. The problem is, most 2GB kits suffer either from poor overclockability or poor timings, most kits leave you with a choice of 200FSB with tight timings and little to no overclocking head room, or a higher FSB with very loose timings and both little overclocking head room and a poor CAS timing at 200FSB.

Today Legit Reviews takes a look at the latest and greatest from Crucial Technologies, the Ballistix PC4000 2GB kit. While the PC4000 may look like any other modules with its 3-4-4-8 timings, don’t be fooled. Crucial, a division of memory giant Micron, has developed a solid reputation for making high quality and extremely versatile modules that have not only proven quite popular with reviewers, but also among the high end enthusiast crowd.
