The tracer line(and Smart Tracers) is really good looking in a modded case but Crucial's support department sucks.

they look nice, here's hoping they dont jack the price tag especially since the memory chips probably will be the same as standard crucial ram. either way im going to try and get my hand on an 8gb kit
