Crucial Pro Overclocking DDR5-6000 2x16GB Review (Page 10 of 10)

Page 10 - Overclocking and Conclusion

Altogether, the Crucial Pro Overclocking DDR5-6000 2x16GB kit offers a reliable and competent option in the DDR5 memory market. While it does not stand out from the rest of the competition, this can be viewed positively, as it means there are no glaring flaws either. Internally, it has quality Micron chips. Its conservative design ensures compatibility with other components thanks to its low heatspreader clearance while still concealing the PCB for a refined look. The heatspreaders ensure dissipation of heat from the memory chips and the PMIC with direct thermal pads over these areas. In terms of performance, Crucial has increased their memory to a stable 6000MT/s at 1.35V. Its timings are a bit more relaxed than other kits at this speed, but we still have support in both AMD and Intel systems. In our tests, the Crucial Pro Overclocking delivered middle-of-the-pack results across synthetic and real-world simulation tests. As indicated by its name, the Crucial Pro Overclocking was capable of faster transfer speeds. In our case, an additional 400MT/s was reached for a Prime95 stable, DDR5-6400 result without needing to relax its timings. This represented a 6.7% overclock. Like other Crucial memory products, the Pro Overclocking kit comes with a lifetime warranty. Priced reasonably at $93 at the time of the review, it offers solid value for a product from a reputable brand. While it may not be the most performance-oriented option, the Crucial Pro Overclocking DDR5-6000 kit presents a reliable, stylish, and competitively priced DDR5 option for users seeking stability and compatibility.
