I’ve always respected Crucial as a company, and in the past have bought most of my own memory from them. Unlike many manufacturers, Crucial offers you a way to directly buy memory and products from them – I’ve done this in the past for some laptop memory, and their memory upgrade advisor works a treat – so check it out.
Today I’ll be reviewing one of their latest DDR3 products – the Ballistix 240-Pin DDR3 PC3-12800 with integrated temperature sensors.
Yes – you did read that right, these dimms have built in temperature sensors! This is certainly new to me, and as far as I know, not offered by any other manufacturer at a consumer level.
Let’s see how they get on. Next Page – Presentation
