Ease of Use

First off, these are very nice sticks. They overclock well and even on 2.1 volts. I actually like these more than my 2gb of Corsair Xpert modules. They run a little warmer than other RAM I've used in the past. I think it would be a good idea to have a fan blowing on them to keep them cooler.

The specs on this memory are excellent. The speed is just phenomenal, and Crucial memory is always excellent. I had no idea when I bought it that it would have such a light show. The bottom of the RAM emits a blue glow that lights up the entire motherboard. And the top has a series of red and green LEDs that flash in entertaining patterns as memory is accessed. Now, I'm not the kind of person who has to light up their computer; in fact, I always think it looks awful. But it's so silly that you laugh out loud when you see the crazy set of lights of all different colors flashing and lighting up the inside of the computer. In fact, I was so entertained I bought a 2nd pair. Maybe I'll start to pimp my computer!

Impressive memory

by on 6/21/2007

I've been using quality memory to overclock for at least 5 years, including corsair w/bh5 chips, mushkin black LvL 2 w/bh5 chips. I added this memory to my C2D system after already reaching 3.4 ghz from stock 2.4 with OCZ platinum DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)currently 125. at newegg. As soon as I added it for a total of 4 gigs memory, it booted up with no problems even though the memory is mismatched. Then while gaming with the new memory and noticing a nice improvement I tried to OC the system higher and had no problem now reaching and stable at 3.5 ghz. It's been about 3 weeks now and still no problems at all. I like the led's since I have a stack of matching towers all UV modded out with windows and H2O cooling. The led's fill in the dark spot where the memory is in my EVGA 680i mobo. I get warm and fuzzy feeling when I consider my 55. rebate, I hope it comes unlike the one from my OCZ memory

Good bling to add to any machine you are building. So far at stock settings the memory has given me no trouble for about a month. We will see how long it holds up in my EVGA 680i main board once I start OC’ing!

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!

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.
