It's hard to believe that Crucial has been around for 10 years.  They've come a long way from their humble beginnings of 16MB of RAM.  They have a nifty little interactive tool on their page that is interesting to play with and see how Crucial, the world and technology have evolved over the years.








To celebrate the 10 year milestone the company has released a nice set of PC2-5300 that is sure to turn some heads - especially those who complain about Crucial's standard gold colored heat spreaders.  These beauties are where it's at and with timings of 3-3-3-12, they should fly.  Take a look below at these sweet modules and tell me that they are an improvement over the standard DDR2 from Crucial.
