“Today I’ll be reviewing one of their latest DDR3 products – the Ballistix 240-Pin DDR3 PC3-12800 with integrated temperature sensors. Yes – you did read that right, these dimms have built in temperature sensors! This is certainly new to me, and as far as I know, not offered by any other manufacturer at a consumer level.”

Xtreme Computing had a chance to play with Crucial’s new Ballistix MOD Temperature-sensing DDR3-1600 @ 8-8-8-24. They have the usual and fairly effective Ballistix heatspreaders, with the orange branding sticker in evidence and they can inform you of their current temperature using the Crucial MOD Utility. In their overclocking tests they could not breach 1820mhz @ 1.658v though with the temperature sensor some may be tempted to go past that voltage to see if they can be pushed further.
