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. And, Ballistix Tracer memory is available in variety of colors depending on technology.
This kit has been out for almost a year now but we felt it deserved a refresh review. This reviewer isnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t one for all out appearances, but having these in ones grasp, its easy to say that this kit is a real treat and furthermore very eye appealing. Moreover, the sleek smooth heatspreaders almost resemble that of carbon fiber on the body of a high performance Lamborghini, both in touch and looks. The sheen of the 2-toneÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â metallic blue on both sides along with the outer edges in sparkly silver that shimmer in the light, has to be one of the most beautiful pieces of hardware one has come across.
Trapped in-between the heatspreaders are (in this particular set) bright, blinding blue lights that are regulated by the modules upon activity. The more stress and workload they are under, the faster the lights dance away up and down each module. This is very appealing to anyone looking to shine up and polish the appearance of their cases, and take full advantage of the side windows; of course this isnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t to everyoneÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s tastes. Each module is very light, a striking contrast to that of G.Skills Trident memory we reviewed last week. It begs the question as to how well these modules can overclock as the heatspreaders (although they look great) donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t look built for serious overclocking. That said thereÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s no tall heatspreaders to get in the way of heatsinks and attached fans which is a bonus!
