Trading the new Crucial Ballistix reduces RAM upgrade costs

If you’ve been thinking about upgrading your PC with new RAM lately, you’ll be delighted to hear that Crucial is attending the Black Friday festival and offering a high-speed clock Ballistix DDR4 RAM kit at a discounted price.

You can find better RAM deals on the dedicated Black Friday RAM deal hub, but the highlight of the current discount is undoubtedly the following dual channels with both 16GB and 32GB flavors of the RGB top Ballistix: A pair of kits. A set for more flashy and persuasive people. Neither is called a starter kit, but if you’re still using 8GB (or worse, 4GB), it could be a good opportunity to upgrade.

Such a Crucial Ballistix kit sits between Crucial’s base memory and the Ballistic Max series built for extreme overclocking. This means that the heat spreader on a regular Ballistix kit is small and ready to use, but most game rigs are perfectly fine and actually have lower latency than Ballistix Max memory. .. These particular 16GB and 32GB kits on the market are also clocked at the very fine 3200MHz, a few steps above the base 2400MHz model.

Or, if you can’t see the RGB lighting, HyperX has two black fury kits a little cheaper this week. The 16GB (2x 8GB) 3200MHz fury set is $ 61 and the 32GB (2x 16GB) 3200MHz option is $ 120. Personally, I choose the 16GB kit of the two. This is because there is enough RAM for the game. If you use the same PC for media editing, encoding, and CAD work, you really only need 32 GB. Still, to take full advantage of multitasking, you need to press the Alt key between them.
