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 two rows of eight "chasing" red and green LEDs atop the module, circulating at varying speeds proportional to usage. 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.
It seems that Crucial now uses a slimmer box that would be able to fit through the average letterbox. The larger one is from the Ballistix 5300 review for comparison. The sticks are separated by a piece of card, and they are individually packed in anti-static bags. Although this packaging is very simple, it is very cheap, eco-friendly, and keeps your new memory safe!
