Crucial Ballistix PC2-6400 DDR2 1GB Kit

Celebrating it's 10 year anniversary, Crucial is a company that even the 'newbie' PC enthusiasts among us will have heard of. With roots steming from Micron Technology - an OEM memory manufacturer with almost 30 years under its belt, there is no question that Crucial modules are designed by some of the most experienced engineers in the industry.
Crucial have been kind enough to send us a 1gb DDR2 kit from their high-performance, overclocker orientated Ballistix range. Here's what they've got to say about them:
"It doesn't matter how fast a memory module is if it isn't stable and doesn't fit your system. Software crashes, choppy game play, and driver and operating system hiccups — all can be caused by bad memory modules. Performance and stability are Crucial! Don't settle for anything less than Ballistix!
The Ballistix line is specifically built for performance enthusiasts who want to push the performance envelope without worrying about data loss or corruption, mysterious intermittent errors and display problems, or worse — the dreaded BSOD! The Ballistix line of high-performance memory modules features advanced speed grades, low latencies, and integrated aluminium heat spreaders."
Most memory modules that I've reviewed in the past have been packaged in a clear plastic blister pack. This seems to work well for showing off funky heatspreader designs, but doesn't always provide optimal protection for the memory against damage.
