Beautiful memory at a great price

by Robby on 10/26/2007

As soon as i received this memory, it just felt like high quality stuff. The heatsinks look great, after you install it turn on the pc you'll want to show everyone. The blue lights along the bottom give it a "floating" effect and the activity lights add nice light action and it's interesting to see how much and how often your memory is accessed. The specs give this low timings and you might have to tweak them in the bios. You might not need 2.1v, 1.8 or 1.9 should work just fine. I have heard you could get this as high as 1066 mhz. You won't be let down if you pick this up.

Looks great, Works Better!!

by Rob on 11/28/2007

This is some fast memory. With fast timings, in dual channel you get awesome bandwidth and it uses micron chips, so there is OC potential for it also. Did i mention how great the lights look? The blue lights on the bottom give a great ambience and the red and green activity lights put on a light show in your computer case, and it's interesting to see how often your pc accesses the memory. The black heatsinks make it look sleek. This is probably the best looking memory i've seen and it's high quality to boot. You will not be disappointed, i wasn't. Just make sure your case has a window to see it, otherwise the lights are pointless.

Product Overview

When You Have The Ultimate Performance System, Can You Really Tolerate Inferior Memory?
It doesn't matter how fast a memory module is if it isn't stable and doesn't fit your system. Software crashes, choppy game play, and driver and operating system hiccups — all can be caused by bad memory modules. Performance and stability are Crucial! Don't settle for anything less than Ballistix!

NVIDIA SLI-Ready system memory certification ensures compatibility and system stability with the rest of the SLI ecosystem components including NVIDIA nForce SLI motherboards, NVIDIA GeForce GPUs, and SLI-Ready power supplies. SLI-Ready memory also supports Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP). When paired with NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI, 680i LT SLI or 590 SLI AMD edition-based motherboards, SLI-Ready memory exposes advanced performance memory settings.

So, What is Ballistix Tracer Memory?
Ballistix Tracer memory is specifically built for performance enthusiasts and case modders who want to push the performance envelope while adding flash appeal to their boxes. The Ballistix line of high-performance memory modules features advanced speed grades, low latencies, and integrated aluminum heat spreaders. Ballistix Tracer memory features a black PCB, black integrated heat spreaders, and one or two rows of eight "chasing" red and green LEDs atop the module, circulating in a random pattern based on memory utilization. A custom-designed circuit relays bus activity to the LEDs, allowing them to accurately reflect usage of each memory module. In addition, eight blue ground effects LEDs emit a constant glow near the pins.

So you ask yourself, "What has Crucial done to make sure Ballistix products operate at the published speed ratings?"

Good question!
After Crucial manufacture's the modules, every Ballistix product is tested in a platform capable of running at its published operating speed.
Crucial Ballistix DDR2 is a leading-edge generation of memory with an improved architecture that allows it to transmit data extremely fast & stable.

What is a Ballistix 240-pin DIMM?
A Ballistix dual inline memory module (DIMM) consists of a number of memory components that are attached to a black printed circuit board. The gold pins on the bottom of the DIMM provide a connection between the module and a motheboard. Ballistix 240-pin DIMMs are used to provide DDR2 SDRAM memory for desktop computers.
