1. Introduction / Retail Package
Crucial keeps releasing new memory modules for the DDR5 platform and today we will test their 64GB kit (2x32) of DDR5-5600 that promises high performance and affordable price. All Crucial's DDR5 memory modules include both Intel XMP 3.0 and AMD EXPO memory profiles their DDR5 memory modules, meaning they are truly universal for all user setups.
No-fuss memory for gaming rigs
1.75x faster than DDR4 to boost in-game frame rates and eliminate screen tears. Enhance your gaming rigs with our sleek design without the fuss of chasing B/E-die, LEDs or the risks associated with overclocking speeds and tuning latency.
Improved productivity for creatives and professionals
With 2x the bandwidth of the previous generation, Crucial DDR5 enables next-level multitasking and faster processing so you can tackle even heavy workloads in less time.
Micron quality and reliability
As one of only three global memory manufacturers, and with 45 years of memory expertise, Micron delivers cutting-edge engineering and superior component and module-level testing for all Crucial DRAM products.

The DDR5-5600 2X32GB Kit Pro can be bought online at Crucial.com at $152.99, which is a good price for DDR5-rated memory. 64GB of DDR5 is very useful for creators or in general, people who use PC for Audio/Video/Photo related workloads. Users can The Crucial DDR5-5600 Pro series can be bought up to 96GB (48GBx2) either with or without a passive heatsink. We sum up the DDR5 prices at this time of writing for your convenient:
The retail package is on par with previous Crucial products, inside a blister package that gives you a quick look at both modules.
The modules are well protected and as you can see the modules don't have any kind of heat spreader, and the black PCB adds to the overall product image. All 12 Micron 16Gbit memory chips are located on both PCB sides. There are no heat spreaders or RGB lighting. At the front, users will find the Crucial logo with a model codename, cache latency, and serial number.
, while at the back there isn't much apart from the memory banks.
Installing the modules at a DDR5-enabled motherboard is not hard, just keep in mind the side with the memory modules should look like the CPU cooler. The low-profile heatspreaders make the modules compliant with JEDEC specs and you can use those modules are any mini ATX system. The overall build quality is great and you cannot go wrong with Crucial, since it has been one of the biggest memory manufacturers for many years. Due to the high bus efficiency of DDR5 technology, you can expect efficiency improvements that provide 36% more system bandwidth than DDR4.
