Crucial Ballistix Sport LT Red DDR4 Review: Conclusion

Crucial is a very solid and trusted brand by Micron. Their DDR4 lineup may not have the fastest or highest clock speed around or fanciest design, but they are very solid performing DDR4 memory kit. At 2400MHz, the Ballistix Sport LT Red DDR4 performed very stable and rock solid. My system was able to recognize it without having any problem during POST. You may not be aware of it, but some memory kits tend to have incompatibility issues with some motherboards (even if they are designed for that platform). This one is easily plug and play.

Aesthetically speaking, it looks very simple, no LED or RGB lighting effects. It has a low profile heat spreader, yet the design of the heat spreader is not lackluster. The red color is actually more attractive compared to its grey variant and the black PCB gives emphasis to the camo-themed heat spreader. Since it has a low profile heat spreader, you shouldn’t have any problems with any CPU air coolers, specially the large ones, like the Noctua NH-D14/D15 or Cryorig R1 Ultimate. However, I would like to see Crucial release some memory kits with LEDs, like what they did before with their DDR3 Ballistix. LEDs on memory kits may seem to be a personal preference, but it wouldn’t hurt to have some kits with LEDs specially if they implemented the lighting or illumination effects properly.

Now in terms of performance, the Ballistix Sport LT Red DDR4-2400 memory is not the fastest around. But its performance is pretty solid and I was able to overclock it up to 3000MHZ. It’s also noteworthy to mention that the Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 series are also one of the lower priced memory kits available on the market. There are some cheaper options, but reliability and probably performance may be questionable.

Finally, the Crucial Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 series is a good solid performing memory kit, very stable and easy to use. It doesn’t promise ultra-fast speeds, but its performance is definitely fast and very much acceptable on a day-to-day computing or gaming use. If you are planning to build or has a black and red themed PC (and doesn’t want/need any LEDs on the mems sticks) the Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 should be on your short list.
