The bright lights of the new Ballistix

Crucial's new Ballistix Tracer DIMMS are DDR3-1333 with a CAS Latency of 6 and timings of 6-6-6-20. It runs at 1.8v, not low enough for a Corei7 system, but lower than many DDR3 kits available. You won't even need to pump the voltage up too high when overclocking, Think Computers hit DDR3-1818 8-8-8-24 and they only had to raise the DIMMs to 1.84v. You can see the decorations that have been added in the full review.
"Crucial, a division of Micron, and one of the oldest memory manufacturers in the industry, has just released a new
low-latency DDR3-1333 4GB kit in their Ballistix Tracer line, with timings of 6-6-6-20. You may know that their Tracer memory
has LEDs to enhance your case lighting scheme, and this new Tracer memory has a new LED setup. The price is actually less than
some of the competition's higher latency DDR3-1333 memory. Will the Ballistix Tracer DDR3 impress us as much as the DDR2,
which was an overclocking monster, did? Read on to see!"
