4 out of 5 eggsgood ram bad dimmer

Pros: I got a really good deal on these at time of purchase. Ram works with no issue and XMP profile took on first try.

Cons: The only con is possibly software related. The software you download to control lighting options offers over 5 levels of dim but only one visible change occurs.

5 out of 5 eggsintuitive lights

Pros: The LED array instantly ramps up strobe effect in relation to usage by CPU. Its very neat. I started with 2 x 4gb with a FX9590 but boy what a difference when I just went ahead and got 2 more for a 4 x 4gb. I mixed the two color options which is nice. At normal to mid-high usage just one color comes on which are blue (blue/orange set) and green (green/red set) then when it ramps hard it goes to the red orange.

Cons: Hard to tweek. I can only ever run on auto settings in bios. sabertooth 990FX. works with "memok" every time. Sad thing is I can't seem to run it higher than 1333 on this board and so I don't ever get the red or orange colors to come out.

2 out of 5 eggsCrucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 8GB (2 x 4GB)

Pros: Looks great!

Cons: These sticks were so unstable.

Other Thoughts: I was very disappointed to have to RMA these. I really enjoyed to look and faster loads but after a weeks usage I started experiencing a whole mess of issues. I was trouble shooting my entire PC when I finally just decided to try my old RAM sticks and I have been gaming happily since. I dont mind the slower loads after all the crashing and freezing I had experienced.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Really fast RAM! The lights, obviously, are a huge plus and they're low profile so they don't cut off airflow to my CPU cooler unlike my previous RAM. I could not be more impressed with it's performance and having since bought this RAM my boot time and application start-up has gotten slightly faster.

Cons: My only con I have with this RAM is how long it took to ship which yes I know that isn't manufacture's problem. It took longer than a week for it to ship and I know that based on it's location it should not have taken that long. (The company other the USPS who shipped it name started with an F) Another problem I have is that the MOD Utility isn't compatible with my motherboard... I have not tried to update my BIOS which I'm sure may end up being the problem. But I want a new mobo anyways so maybe this gives me an excuse to buy more!

Other Thoughts: I purchased this RAM to replace some Corsair Vengeance series RAM that had also served me well although, Crucial's RAM in my opinion is much faster. I was a little upset with the shipping time and the fact that the shipment company who cannot be named, never updated their tracking services on Newegg or through email, untill the day I got it. Which for me was quite aggravating and a little nerve racking as my Corsair was corrupted and my computer was going through non stop crashes. Either way, I got it and I am in no way, shape, or form disappointed!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: This memory has been working great in my system for over two years. I run it on the stock speeds and am satisfied. The software is nice for controlling the LEDs.

Cons: Overclocking them will take some time. I have not spent enough time to find the best setting for my system.

Other Thoughts: Other system specs:
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500k @ 4.0 GHz
GPU: MSI Radeon HD 7850 tTwin Frozr III
MB: ASRock Z77 Extreme 4
Monitor: Dell U2711 at 2560x1440

5 out of 5 eggsGood Memory

Pros: Bought this memory to upgrade my system from 4gigs to 8gigs. Put the memory in and it worked without hassle with all bios memory settings set to Auto.

Cons: No cons that I can think of. The memory works.

Other Thoughts: This memory was put in an ASUS M4A79T Deluxe motherboard. This memory wasnt bought for the lights. It was bought because of the number of good reviews that other Neweggers wrote about it. In case your wondering though, yes the lights work.

5 out of 5 eggsTactical Tracers

Pros: -LED's. If you have a windowed case, these make your rig look great!
-Crucial's support program allows you to change between the 2 colors, as well as brightness, and pattern. I personally enjoy stereo mode. The intensity and rapidness of the lights are dependant on how much the system is utilizing the ram.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought the 2x 4gb kit in blue/orange, 1600 @ cas 8.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Ram

Pros: Fast memory. Pretty led lights. Love the software. Easy install. received on time and undamaged. Overclocks fairly well.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I also have a red/green set also on my motherboard. I must say that it makes for an interesting light show. The software is great. It works well with my asus amd 990fx r2 gen3 mobo. No issues. Memory is currently running around 1900mhz coupled with an amd fx 9590 running @ 5.1ghz. Love the memory. Would buy again. Good job Crucial.
