I believe the prices hiked after a Fire at a Hynix plant - caused more demand so of course prices rose.

I recently bought 4x 4GB sticks of 1600 8-8-8-24 1.5 V (BLT4G3D1608DT2TXOBCEU) for mine and my partners upgrade, and are loving the kit so far. Have had it running 1866 @ stock timings with @ 1.575 V; not much tweaking or testing so far, but hasn't BSOD or given errors since the first setting and voltage bump!

How are they ugly, and how are they heatsinks ? tongue.gif
I could swear it was just plastic on top of the heatsink.

I have these (Ballistix Tactical) 2X8GB. Is it worth taking them off and using little Forged Copper Heatsinks?
post #1087 of 1088
Never bought those sticks since i upgraded my storage and phone instead of getting a x79 platform.. i think someone else got a better answer here but i would say those hs are not worth it mainly becouse you cant fit 4 sticks further down the road and the price of four of those kits for two sticks is too much tongue.gif rather get an active ramcooler thumb.gif

And when i builded a computer for someone in the family using the tacticals i didnt notice them getting any warm

I bought my Ballistix Tactical 2X8GB for $150 at a local Microcenter (on sale). They were $180 originally and when I look around at other places, they're $170+ So I got em for a pretty good price and the timing is great 8-8-8-24 / 1600mhz.
I really, really doubt that, I'd need two more sticks.. 16GB is more then enough for me. I mainly use it for gaming. The reason I even got 16GB is because I do some video editing & photoshop here and there.
