Triple channel memory is still going strong, even with the coming release of quad channel support on the X68 chipset. For those looking to speed up an existing system using a triple channel kit the Crucial Ballistix DDR3-1866 6GB will cost you under $200 and is compatible with Crucial’s M.O.D. software that will allow you to keep track of the SPD information as well as the current temperatures and speed. Think Computers managed an impressive overclock, which you can read about in the review.
"A little while ago we took a look at a 4GB dual channel Ballistix kit from Crucial. Today Crucial has sent us a 6GB triple channel kit of Ballistix and we are very eager to see how it performs. This 6GB kit runs at 1866MHz with timings of 9-9-9-24 at 1.65V. Just like the other kit we took a look at this kit features XMP profiles, Crucial’s new Ballisitx heatspreaders and on-board temperature sensors and monitoring software. Let’s check them out!"
