This week we are reviewing our third 1600MHz DDR3 memory kit in the last few months. First we brought you the high-end Elite series memory, then in early December we looked at the mid-range Tactical memory. This time around we are looking at some Crucial Sport series memory, which is the lowest cost offering from Crucial as part of the Ballistix family. This kit consists of 2x8GB 1600MHz modules with a "VLP" (very low profile) design that it is marketed to mainstream users as a "budget-friendly" model.

Features and Specifications:

The Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP kit being reviewed today contains 2x8GB memory modules rated at 9-9-9-24 timings. Voltage requirements are lower than normal, and just like the Tactical series from Crucial, they are rated at 1.35v. The lower voltage requirement should allow for a bit more headroom when overclocking, which we will cover in this review. The specifications listed below were taken straight from the product page on the website.

» Memory Type: Desktop DDR3

» Registered/Unbuffered: Unbuffered

» Type: 240-pin DIMM

The Crucial tried-and-true clamshell design we are used to holds the Ballistix Sport VLP 16GB DDR3 1600MHz kit in place. A single sticker on the front of packaging describes the kit storage size (16GB), the clock frequency (1600MHz), and the rated CL9 timings. "VLP" is also designated to remind you this kit uses the "Very Low Profile" module design intended to fit into very tight areas.
