Overclocking the Ballistix Tactical Tracer RGB DDR4-2666
Overclocking the Ballistix Tactical Tracer RGB DDR4-2666 was quite easy and honestly I was quite surprised that I was able to squeeze out more from this 2666 memory kit. I was able to reach 3100MHz on the Z370 system and 3200MHz on the X470 system. I guess, depending on how well a motherboard can overclock and maintain the stability of the system’s settings also plays an important role in overclocking this memory stick.
