Crucial Desktop DDR4 Review

👤by Richard Weatherstone Comments 📅01-11-14

The Crucial DDR4 kit we have reviewed today is an easy product to place. It will appeal to those who are looking for a no nonsense entry level DDR4 memory kit that will be at home in either server or desktop environment. While it may not possess the glamour of other memory kits on the market, without all of that gloss, this memory kit will perform just as well as any other kit at the same speed so long as you do not intend to overclock.

For 149 you can't really go wrong. DDR4 is inherently expensive at the moment due to it being new to the market but we expect prices to begin to settle after the Christmas period when stocking levels are placed under less strain so this will certainly be even more of a bargain when that time comes. Until then, if you are desperate to make the jump to an X99 based platform then this kit will leave a little extra funds in the bank to either spend elsewhere in your PC configuration or indeed allow you to purchase 2 kits for the same price it would cost for one higher range set. Whatever your needs, it is worth noting that Crucial have other memory kits in the range if this kit doesn't serve your purpose (excuse the pun). Check out the Ballistix range if overclocking is your game but if you are happy with the simpler things in life then this kit is worthy of consideration if nothing else for the value it offers.

Costing less than half the price of high end memory kits, you could double your RAM levels with this keenly priced DDR4 memory kit from Crucial.

+ Value for money
+ No frills computing
+ Suitable for Server or Desktop environments

- Overclockers should look elsewhere
