BOISE, Idaho, and GLASGOW, United Kingdom, Nov. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, today
announced the immediate availability of Crucial Ballistix Low Profile (LP)
memory, which delivers a true low profile design to provide more clearance
around high-end CPU coolers and improve airflow throughout the system.
Designed for performance enthusiasts and small form factor computer builders
with limited space, Crucial Ballistix LP memory features all the performance
benefits of Ballistix memory without the height concerns of taller modules.
Since overclocked systems with power-hungry processors are often
heat-intensive and require oversized CPU coolers to regulate temperatures,
clearance for memory modules is often limited. To address this, Crucial
Ballistix LP memory modules are between 15 percent and 35 percent lower
profile than competing modules.* Using up to 10 percent less power (1.35V)
than standard modules (1.5V), Crucial Ballistix LP memory modules also help
reduce the cooling problem in high-performance systems, resulting in a lower
thermal profile and less fan noise, and enable easier overall system cooling.
"Crucial Ballistix LP memory delivers all the benefits users have come to
expect from Crucial high-performance memory – just in a smaller package," said
Jeremy Mortensen, senior worldwide product manager, Crucial. "While other low
profile offerings on the market provide some clearance, Crucial Ballistix LP
memory delivers a true low profile and low power design to give users more
clearance around their CPU coolers, while using less power for increased
Leveraging the industry-leading design and manufacturing capability of Micron
Technology, Crucial Ballistix LP memory is backed by a limited lifetime
warranty, and is compatible with the latest platforms from Intel^® and AMD.
Crucial Ballistix LP memory is available in a variety of popular DDR3L speeds
and up to 8GB in density for both Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP (very low
profile) and Tactical LP models. Crucial Ballistix LP memory modules are
available now at www.crucial.com, Amazon.com, Newegg.com, and Tigerdirect.com.
