Crucial Ballistix Smart Tracer PC3-12800 4GB Kit Review - Crucial Ballistix Smart Tracer PC3-12800 4GB Kit Review

"I didn't think we'd ever see anything too fancy from the company, though, but over the years we've seen the Ballistix series which has grown to include a few different series' within that. The latest is the Smart Tracer modules that carry that LED Tracer lighting, but in a smart way. We say 'smart way' as the company has introduced the new Memory Overview Display software (or M.O.D). We'll get into this soon, but let's first have a closer look at the actual kit of RAM we're dealing with. Externally the Ballistix Smart Tracer doesn't look any different to the normal Tracer stuff. We've again got two modules for our P67 platform that comes in at 2GB each. Timing wise, we've got an 8-8-8-24-1T @ 1.65v setup at 1600MHz DDR (or PC3-12800). These run at the same speed as the Patriot 8GB kit we recently looked at, except they're slightly more aggressive on the timings front. With the speed being quite low compared to some other kits we've looked at, we knew getting to the default timings wouldn't be an issue."
