Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400 Review

Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400 Review

Over the years we have seen some fairly varied memory designs. One that immediately springs to mind were some crazy sticks that had plug in LED panels on the top which, if we remember correctly, you could program with different info. Then there were the more subtle, but cool sticks from the likes of Crucial which had LEDs on top to show activity. With today’s review product we are not quite as fancy, but style was definitely on the minds of the Crucial team when they were creating it. Welcome to our Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400 Review.


Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400 Review – The Modules


As expected Crucial go with a fairly standard set of packaging on this version of the Ballistix series. We get an information label on the front and suspended inside are two modules. A cardboard sleeve gives us some key info on the back and as long as the sticks arrive in a nice protective packet, like this, then really memory doesn’t need anything else.

As for the modules they use a white PCB and attached to it are white and silver aluminium heatsinks with Ballistix Sport branding. Attached to each is a part number sticker which also includes speed and timings as well as voltage. For those specifications it is 8GB per stick (XMP is supported) and the profile provided sets the memory at 2400MHz with 16-16-16-39 @ 1.2v. Warranty length is of course “lifetime”.

Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400 Review – Conclusion

Starting with the build quality and design of these Ballistix Sport modules we have a product which impresses. Experience tells us that Crucial always produce parts which are highly compatible and stable. The Ballistix Sport should be no different. Crucial use quality Micron (their parent company) memory and XMP is built in to make our life easy. Just plug in the sticks, select the XMP profile in the BIOS and reboot. Perfectly configured memory. We also like the design of these white modules and they look great on the MSI Z170A Xtreme Gaming Titanium Edition that we just reviewed.

As far as price and performance go, the Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400 kit retails at a competitive level. Performance is good across the board with no issues when compared to the competition. In every test they were hitting the level we would expect from 2400 C16 modules and as an added bonus we were able to hit 3000Mhz with a bit of tweaking in the BIOS (C17 at 1.3v).
