The 64GB DDR5-4800 memory kit from Crucial does offer good performance and compatibility, while having a bit of headroom in terms of overclocking.

Our second Crucial DDR5 memory kit sample is composed from 32GB modules for a total of 64GB, while retaining a stock frequency of 4800MHz, a CAS latency of 40 and an operating voltage of 1.1, all integrated inside a prepared XMP profile. The kit has arrived inside a transparent plastic enclosure, which allows the user to look at how the modules are designed, without opening:

On the opposite side of the module, we will note the 8 additional ICs, but also an extra sticker:




The PMIC splits the 5V from the motherboard to the different components; this one carries the APW8502C internal code name:




On the mentioned sticker we will find some QR codes, the internal product code name but also the module specs:
