Crucial® Ballistix® Random Access Memory (RAM) is engineered to boost your gaming PC and help you win. Lower latencies, effortless overclocking, aggressive heat spreaders, real-time temperature monitoring, and premium components manufactured to the highest reliability standards all make a difference in your gaming.

Record Breaking Speeds and Lower latencies

Every Crucial Ballistix module we make is designed with speed in mind. We’ve set records. We innovate gaming products that battle for every-last megatransfer as we strive for our next high score — and help you set yours. 

Latency is the gap between when you enter a command and when the data is available. Memory speed is based on clock cycles (read and write), or how many cycles per second the memory can achieve. Speed and latency both play a critical role in system performance. Crucial Ballistix memory is not just assembled but engineered with speed and latency in mind. Here are our specs:

Modern Design and Bold RGB Effects

Sleek heat spreaders complement the most popular boards on the market and make your rig worth showing off. Crucial Ballistix modules are available with black, white, and red anodized aluminum heat spreaders. They have a low-profile for smaller or space-constrained rigs. Crucial Ballistix MAX modules are built with high-quality, extruded aluminum heat spreaders that provide maximum heat dissipation.

Crucial Ballistix and Ballistix MAX are also available in RGB modules. These have 16 RGB LEDs in 8 zones that can be controlled with software. Ballistix MAX even allows you to remove the lightbar for further 3D-print customization.

Reliability

With hundreds of awards, multiple esport championships, and numerous overclocking world records under its belt, Crucial Ballistix memory sets the standard for performance and reliability. Crucial Ballistix is the only brand of gaming memory that’s made by Micron, one of the world’s three major DRAM component manufacturers. Others may pose as manufacturers, but because they don’t make the chips themselves, they use a variety of components from multiple suppliers to piece together gaming modules.

Crucial Ballistix modules are engineered and optimized at the die level to win. You can’t piece together reliability. The highest level of quality and reliability is achieved when every aspect of the memory – from the best die to finished module – is tested and monitored at every phase. That’s how we make Crucial Ballistix.

CRUCIAL BALLISTIX

Crucial Ballistix gaming memory is designed for high-performance overclocking and is ideal for gamers and performance enthusiasts looking to push beyond standard limits.  
 

Crucial Ballistix MAX family image

CRUCIAL BALLISTIX MAX

Crucial Ballistix MAX gaming memory is designed for extreme overclocking. A high-quality matte black extruded aluminum heat spreader provides maximum heat dissipation, while an on-DIMM sensor allows for real-time temperature monitoring.  

Note: If you overclock, you’ll void your warranty, but this is often a small price to pay for unrestrained performance.
