Some thing old, something blue

At over $200 the Crucial Ballistix Tracer Blue DDR3-1600 DDR3 kit isn't the cheapest on the market, but speeds above 1066MHz are still a small enough niche to demand a high price. The voltage is right on Intel's spec of 1.65V and the timings are fairly impressive for the overall frequency at 8-8-8-24. The biggest change from previous Tracer DIMMs is the colour, these guys have blue LEDs for those who like that sort of thing and there are red, green, and multicolored Tracers if the blue doesn't match the current ambiance of your case. Drop by Think Computers to see how they perform.
"Our friends at Crucial are definitely onboard, they have released new Ballistix Tracer triple channel kits. If you
didn't know, Crucial Tracer memory modules have LEDs on the PCB to lend an interesting light display to your case
interior. Today I will be looking at one of these, the Crucial Ballistix Tracer Blue DDR3-1600 6GB kit. Yes, the
Tracer is now in blue, to match the lighting in a majority of rigs. Will the Tracer Blue live up to the high
expectations we always have for Crucial products? Read on to see!"
