High Frequency Crucial Ballistix Kits Ship with Built In Thermal Sensor

Paul Lilly

Do memory modules really get hot enough to justify active cooling? Maybe you're wondering if your case's poor airflow is affecting your RAM. The problem here is that temp monitors for memory modules are few and far between, at least that's the case if you're running run-of-the-mill memory.

Crucial set out to solve this dilemma by injecting a thermal sensor into select Ballistix kits, and these specially equipped modules now come in speeds of DDR3-1866MHz in capacities of 2GB, 4GB (2x2GB), and 6GB (2x3GB), and DDR3-2133 in capacities of 2GB and 4GB (2x2GB).

Crucial says these kits come with an improved finned heatspreader design resulting in up to 30 percent better performance in heat dissipation over previous kits, and to prove it, you can download the Ballistix MOD Utility to see just how hot (or cool) these modules are running.

The new kits are available now direct from Crucial, and you can download the temp monitoring software from here .
