The Crucial Ballistix PC3-12800 DDR3 Triple Channel 6GB Smart Tracer Memory with LEDs is probably the coolest memory on the planet. With a number of color LED options, enthusiasts and modders will love it. Being triple channel 1600MHz memory with a timing of 8-8-8-24 also means it's fast. And let's not forget Crucial's fantastic no hassle support.

If you're in the market for DDR3 dual channel memory that performs very well, is reliable and compatible, the Crucial Ballistix PC3-12800 DDR3 Dual Channel 4GB Memory might just be what you are looking for. This memory also comes with Crucial's new heatspreader and a thermal sensor. And let's not forget Crucial's unprecedented support and warranty.

If you're in the market for a SATA III 6Gb/s Soild State Drive you don't have a lot to choose from. Well, you do now! The Crucial RealSSD C300 256GB SSD is extremely fast and it's backed by Crucial's fantastic service and support.

The Crucial Ballistix PC3-12800 DDR3 Dual Channel 4GB Memory performs very well. It has a speed of 1600MHz, latency of 8-8-8-24 and is 1.65 volts. The orange/silver heatspreader looks excellent and since this memory is of normal dimension it will not interfere with CPU coolers. I was a little disappointed though that it would not run at 8-8-8-24 using 1T, I had to set it to 2T. This is still very acceptable and still yields excellent results.

The Crucial M225 256GB SSD is the fastest Solid State Drive I've tested so far. The read and write times are off the chart, beating two WD VelociRaptor's in RAID 0 by a long shot. If you're in the market for a SSD keep this one at the very top of your list. Watch the video to find out more...
