    Comments about Ballistix Sport 16GB Kit (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 UDIMM:

    Got this upgrade from 6GB that was constantly at 90% capacity, bogging down, etc. I am a little puzzled that it shows all installed but only 8 or the 16 GB available. All of the answers as to how to get all 16 available did not work, some say it doesn't matter that i looks like only half is available. Thing is I notice better performance and less than half of the RAM usage that my meter was showing before...so I'm puzzled but seem to have accomplished the goal of the upgrade.

      Comments about Ballistix Sport 16GB Kit (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 UDIMM:

      bought this kit to replace an intermittent samsung 2 gb chip (part of 5 x 2 gb. in my primary business machine. I was having blue screen crashes and no amount of mem testing could find the problem. I conclude it was an intermittent chip because I installed this 16gb kit and the system has been rock solid ever since. No problems after 400-500 hrs use. Speed improved which is nice but the main benefit for me is reliability and stability. I can't afford to lose hours of work to intermittent blue screen crashes and troubleshooting. I now have enough ram to spare that I set up a 1 gb ramdisk for browser caching and temp files which improved browsing speed and graphics editing considerably.
      Good product
      good shipping time
      installed easily
      system recognized everything on the first boot
      I would recommend both product and supplier.

        Huge Improvement in performance with this 4GB x 4 Kit

        Comments about Ballistix Sport 16GB Kit (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 UDIMM:

        Even though I had 8GB of RAM, my Alienware Desktop system seemed sluggish. With the 4GB x 4 Kit (16GB) kit, everything became much more responsive. It was as if my system had been bottle-necked since I purchased it and now, everything is smooth, fast and responsive. It is as if I am using a 'new' PC!

        With eighteen different windows open and several other task running, plus background task, my memory is 29%. Before my upgrade, I would hover around 70% and even at rest no apps or windows open, my system never got below 30%; ever!

        Installation was very easy and system recognized the new memory on initial boot. I am very pleased with my purchase.

        System Specs: Intel i7 4820K, Ivy Bridge-E, 3.70GHz. DDR3 / Quad

        In use 4.5GB / Available 11.2 GB
        Committed 5.7/31.9GB | Cached 2.5GB
        Paged pool 359 MB / Non-paged pool 241 MB

        Speed: 1600 MHz
        Slots: 4 of 4
        Form : DIMM
        Hardware reserved 81.8 MB

        Also, this memory is running at : 9-9-9-24
        with Row Refresh Cycle (tRFC)of 128 clocks and
        Command Rate (CR) 2T
        SPD Ext: XMP 1.3

        Anyway, I am a casual gamer as well, mainly CoD or other Third-person Shooter games and I have noticed a positive performance improvement as well. However, for gaming, your graphics card is the primary factor. Nevertheless, system memory upgrade cannot hurt, especially if you still use standard SATA-3 7,200 HDD's, with or without RAID.
