Quick Take: Crucial Pro Overclocking DDR5-6000 RAM is Now Available in White, and It’s Quite Great

Share what you're reading!

When it comes to system memory, the color generally doesn't matter much—the sticks are hidden inside a computer's case anyway. But sometimes, the slight change in the appearance can make your investment that much more worthwhile, especially when the existing design has already been fantastic. Case in point: the white Crucial Pro Overclocking DDR5-6000 that was unveiled today.

The new RAM is virtually the same as the older black version that's been on the market since the beginning of the year, but the new white color has its appeal.

Crucial Pro Overclocking DDR5: No-nonsense workhorse RAM

As mentioned, the new system memory is, well, not new. The black version was first available in May 2023, and it initially had no overclocking capability. In February, a new black version of the same specs was introduced with support for overclocking—that is, it allows users to tweak it within a supported motherboard's BIOS to deliver faster performance than the default. And today, we have the white version of that, officially available.

Crucial Pro has generally been a no-nonsense, frill-free DDR5 system memory. This new white version follows that. It still does not have integrated RGB lighting like other gaming RAM. Instead, it has a built-in white heat spreader that helps keep the temperature low, which is especially important when you choose to overclock it, where it runs at a higher clock speed than the default settings.

I've used Crucial Pro for many of my testbeds for a while, and it has proven to be excellent RAM overall. Its frill-free nature is a plus—I'm not a fan of flashing lights. The memory sticks are stable and have never caused any issues. You can expect the same experience with this white version.

I've tried a couple of sticks for a few days, and they have been a pleasant surprise. The white color helped me quickly identify which testbed to use among a few similar machines. The black background, which is the motherboard on an open case, also adds a bit of aesthetic touch. That doesn't hurt.

Crucial Pro Overclocking DDR5-6000 RAM's hardware specifications

Crucial Pro Overclocking DDR5-6000 is also flexible. It has built-in support for both XMP 3.0 profiles and the EXPO profile, which makes it compatible with any high-end system. In my trial, it also played well with other DDR5 in a mixed configuration. So, if you have another 16GB stick of a different RAM brand, you can mix it with a Crucial to have 32GB without worrying about losing stability or even performance, though in this case, overclocking is no longer an option.

Overall, if you're not into bling, these are excellent RAM sticks for your new or existing DDR5-enabled performance/gaming rig.

Availability and pricing

The white Crucial Pro Overclocking DDR5-6000 UDIMM RAM is available, and you won't need to pick and choose since it carries the exact friendly cost as the black version, which is around $80 for a 16TB stick or $110 for 32GB in a package of two 16GB sticks. You generally only need one stick, but 32GB is typically the optimal amount of RAM for a performance machine. Consider one today!
