Using geizhals as our price research tool, we find that offers for 2x8GB sets of 1600C9 Ballistix Sport VLP start at 69 Euros excluding shipping across the EU. Taking a look at similarly clocked kits from other manufacturers shows us that from 27 kits they are the cheapest along with the non-VLP version that is 3 Euros cheaper.

The Ballistix Sport VLP are not only the cheapest and smallest memory on the market they also offer good manufacturing quality and overclocking headroom. In a nutshell if you are looking for a 2x8GB memory kit in this price range then you should definitely consider the Sport VLP as choice number one.

     Crucial Ballistix Tactical 2x8GB
    Hello, first I'd like to state that your memory reviews are one of the very best/detailed I have seen. I'd like to ask you to include Crucial Ballistix Tactical 2x8GB kit into your testing. According to several reviews they have more OC potential than Ballistix Sport VLP tested here and are low voltage/low profile. I am very interested into your findings before I buy them. Thanks in advance.

    Thank you. We appreciate, that you like our memory reviews We'll see what we can do. So far, we're planning on publishing another "batch" of memory reviews this summer, after Haswell has been released. It is our intention to do future memory reviews based on Haswell setups, since we have hopes that Haswell's IMC is a bit better than the one you can find with Ivy Bridge.
