Crucial, a leading supplier of memory and storage upgrades, on Monday unveils Crucial Ballistix low profile (LP) memory, which delivers a 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.

"Crucial Ballistix LP memory delivers all the benefits users have come to expect from Crucial high-performance memory – just in a smaller package. 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 energy efficiency," said Jeremy Mortensen, senior worldwide product manager at Crucial.

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.

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% and 35% lower than competing modules. Using up to 10% 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 is backed by a limited lifetime warranty, and is compatible with the latest platforms from Intel and AMD. Crucial Ballistix LP memory modules are available now at Crucial.com, Amazon.com, Newegg.com, and Tigerdirect.com.
