5 out of 5 eggsToo Cool!

Pros: Same timings and voltage as the older tracer so works fine together. Two different color LED's and lighting patterns to play with through MOD software. Temp sensors (who doesn't like system info?). Crucial quality and reputation. 8CL.
OC fine @ 1.655 V, 9CL and 2T

Cons: A little pricier than most RAM but look what you get!

Other Thoughts: My 2 sticks of older Tracer are red LED and I run these on blue. Looks awesome together. Can't control older Tracers with MOD but I don't care. If you have a side window and like lights and bling, this RAM's got you covered!

5 out of 5 eggs10 bucks a stix

Pros: -It's exactly what I expected
-tight timings
-Thermal Sensors

Cons: -Wont run at rated speed on a P5Q3 Deluxe wifi, but most p45 boards have issues running 2x2GB at 1600mhz, thats the memory controllers fault, not the RAM.

Other Thoughts: I've been able to set the timings to 7-7-7-18 with a performance level of 8 at 1400mhz. So I'm not going to complain, 5 stars ;)

5 out of 5 eggsHaha

Pros: It's Fast cheap and makes me giggle when I turn the lights off and I can see it flashing. I also love how it seems that the lights change speed depending on how hard the RAM is working, not sure if it actually does, but when I boot up a game it flashes faster than when I'm at the desktop.

Cons: Nothing/ can distract if you have ADHD like myself, but that's not big at all.

Other Thoughts: I only got this because they only had one stick left of the other RAM I was after they are both exactly the same spec wise this one just has L.E.D.s and cost like a dollar more so in the end it was worth it.

2 out of 5 eggsGood Ram, WRONG PART!

Pros: OK, This is cool memory.. It works like a charm, and the color is nice

Cons: The order states BLT2G3D1608DT2TXOB
The container states BLT2G3D1608DT2TXOB
The sticker on the RAM states BLT2G3D1608DT2TXRG

Yup, half of the RAM in my box is Orange/Blue... and this set is Red/Green

Other Thoughts: not going to send this back, I need the RAM more then I need the hastle
Besides, I am getting used to the multi-color effect...

Just wish Crucial had at least a weeeee bit of quality control... Just a wee bit (Like... is the right part in the box?)

Manufacturer Response:
