Ballistix Introduces the Tactical Tracer DDR4 Gaming Modules With RGB Capability

Ballistix has announced the DDR4 version of their Tactical Tracer memory modules, with the new memory type allowing for the usual DDR4 speeds, starting at 2,666 MHz. Since these share the same brains as the non-RGB tactical modules the company already distributes, one can expect timings (CAS latencies of 15 and 16), speeds and voltages (starting at 1.20V) to be in-line with previous offerings. These include the usual tactical Tracer specs, including XMP profiles, a black PCB, and customizable heat spreaders. The RGB lighting allows users to tailor the look of their memory according to their chosen rig color scheme, while offering at-a-glance temperature control (blue is cool, red is not.) All RGB features are controlled through yet another RGB controller software: in this case, the Ballistix M.O.D. (Memory Overview Display) software.

The customizable heat spreaders don't stop on the RGB lighting options, though; actually, Ballistix is offering a removable module for the heat-spreaders that users can customize by 3D printing substitute parts. The company is providing the 3D printer design files on its website, though you should be able to build upon them with your own. This is one of the most interesting features of these modules, though I wager we'll see a much higher 3D printing penetration once those little machines that can get their pricing further reduced (make no mistake - 3D printing is one of the most promising consumer technologies. Pricing information is currently unavailable, though Ballistix said the Tactical Tracer DDR4 RGB modules will be available in Q3 - with a limited lifetime warranty to boot.

I don't really get what you're going at. yes, they use the thumbnail of a youtube video to show how it would like in your system. Should they show the entire video instead or make their demo just to get the pictures?

No. They even credited crucial as a source. Nothing is stolen or taken.

From the 1st and 3rd pic new DDR4 Tracers dont have so called ground effect leds. While the thumbnail of youtube video are the DDr3 tracers not DDR4 tracers, each generation Crucial has changed design of tracers. So if you like being mislead then yeah be happy with random thumbnails from youtube videos.
