Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3 6GB 1600MHz Triple-Channel Memory Kit


Crucial's Ballistix & Ballistix Tracer memory modules are their enthusiast / high performance memory lineup. Today we will be taking a look at the 6GB DDR3 1600MHz triple-channel memory kit. Crucial also offers a 6GB DDR3 kit running at 1333 MHz. The Core i7 (X58 Chipset / Socket 1366) processors utilize triple-channel memory, using sets of three matched memory sticks instead of the traditional pairs for dual-channel memory.

Besides the classic Ballistix Tracer kit which is a black heat spreader and mixed colored LEDs, the newer kits come in red, green, or blue. They do NOT sell kits with one of each color (as pictured above), Crucial sent me this assortment strictly for demo purposes.

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 one or two rows of eight "chasing" red and green LEDs atop the module, circulating in a random pattern based on memory utilization. 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.
