Crucial Touts More Headspace with Ballistix Low Profile RAM



+ Add a Comment


Hmmm, if only I maxed out my 16 GB of RAM regularly (and if only I had higher than 7 Home Premium).

Just a year ago, when I built my PC, 8 GB DIMMs were rather rare, now they're everywhere. Ah, progress. :D

I'm not too sure of the RAM speed capabilities of my 990FX motherboard. We're making the 2133 MHz leap, but my motherboard does not claim to support such speeds. Currently my processor doesn't even take true advantage of 1600 MHz, Phenom II X4, IIRC as it sacrifices higher DDR3 speed capacity to retain DDR2 compatibility...?

I do wish AMD would roll out another motherboard chipset, their flagship 990fx is getting kinda stale.
