This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (with Red/Green Light) Model BLT2KIT4G3D1608DT2TXRG

Pros: havent had any problems with with the 4 sticks i have

like that you can switch between red and green (not just one color choice)

easy to use management app

like that its made by crucial

Cons: cant run one stick with both colors.

older ddr2 models had 4 or 5 colors per stick, seems like a step back

Other Thoughts: going strong for 2.5 years. 16gb on a asus 990fx

havent tried over clocking these and dont plan too.


ya ya ya, i know its rice but i dont care

1 out of 5 eggsDOA or grosslly incompatible?

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (with Red/Green Light) Model BLT2KIT4G3D1608DT2TXRG

Pros: They are Cas 8 and 1.5V.

Cons: Tried it in 2 different MoBos (ASUS and GIGABYTE), both refused to boot after their original DDR3 has been replaced with at least one of these sticks. I find it highly unlikely that both sticks in the kit I received were somehow defective, yet neither stick could be made to work. This is the first time in my 15 years building my own PCs when I have run into a problematic DDR kit. I will be ordering a different brand.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Ram

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (with Red/Green Light) Model BLT2KIT4G3D1608DT2TXRG

Pros: Easy install, fast, great looking led lights.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I don't know why people are having an issue with the MOD utility. I have down loaded the software anad have zero issues. I have this memory on an Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2 Gen 3 board. The memory is currently running at 1880. No issues. I also have an AMD FX 9590 clocked at 5.017 out of the box. Idles at 34c. Great machine. Would recommend and would buy again.

1 out of 5 eggsLikes to crash my computer.

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (with Red/Green Light) Model BLT2KIT4G3D1608DT2TXRG

Pros: The RAM has a lows CL, and and at a reasonable voltage.

Different modes to run LEDs at.

Looks nice to some people.

Cons: doesn't work with x79 bases systems.

Blue screens me 1-2 times a day

software won't launch

cant do anything intensive, or play games for a long time without it crashing my computer

gives errors in memory test.

Other Thoughts: Should have gotten RAM that is known to work. Wouldn't recommend this because of compatibility issues, and headaches.

5 out of 5 eggsmemory

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (with Red/Green Light) Model BLT2KIT4G3D1608DT2TXRG

Pros: it is stable on a asus saber-tooth z87 board LGA 1150, the leds look good when turned down just a notch.
It is also prime95 stable overclocked ABOVE XMP 1600 specs. on the same board running a corsair ram cooler.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: for me i had to turn the leds down just a little bit using the mod utility, this is not really a con because they are adjustable with the utility that you can get from crucial's website for free

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong a year later.

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (with Red/Green Light) Model BLT2KIT4G3D1608DT2TXRG

Pros: Red/Green LEDs are very cool. Stable and fast.

Cons: Price has gone up.

Other Thoughts: What can be said other than Crucial does it again with the Ballistix Tracer series. The RAM looks cool, has heatsinks, and uses red and green LEDs that are useful when used in conjunction with the M.O.D Utility.
The only con I can think of is price; it's doubled in the last year which makes buying two of these kits an expensive undertaking. Still, having 16GB of RAM cool RAM is worth it and I would recommend Crucial to anyone looking for stable memory for their ultimate build.

3 out of 5 eggsworked for a while

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (with Red/Green Light) Model BLT2KIT4G3D1608DT2TXRG

Pros: Looks great, the downloaded program allows some customization of the LED flash sequences, fast at first, recognized by ASUS motherboard, and an MSI board.

Cons: I purchased this for my husband's work computer in April 2012. Until about a month ago, it worked very well at 1600. The computer crashed after testing everything from mobo to video card to drives I was able to find only that the machine would run with the full 8 gigs of ram if it was set to 1333 MHz. I was able to narrow down which dimm was bad.

Other Thoughts: I helped a friend build a gaming computer using the the Blue/orange version. The memory worked well for about a month, then one dimm died. I have used crucial memory in many builds since 2002, and have never had any of their stuff fail before. This memory was never overclocked, so I would not expect a faiilure of this sort from crucial.

5 out of 5 eggsAlmost 2 Years old and still Awesome!

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (with Red/Green Light) Model BLT2KIT4G3D1608DT2TXRG

Pros: Leds work flawlessly and memory is fast and reliable running on a Asrock FX990 Extreme 4 motherboard. The people that are complaining about short lifetime and dead leds are more than likely not using static electricity precautions. I have bought more than 56 sets of these over the past 2 years and all are still working.

Cons: Price just keep going up! Bought my first ones at 50 a pair a year ago.

Other Thoughts: You must use anti static protection on your body or they will be destroyed as soon as you touch them and when removing them from their package also cause static. Even at an undetectable level you will get static discharge at a minimum of hundreds of volts. Not detected due to hardly no current. Walk across a carpet and touch a door knob and you got 17,000 volts of a spark that you can see and feel.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory Stick

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (with Red/Green Light) Model BLT2KIT4G3D1608DT2TXRG

Pros: This is a great memory stick! I had compatibility problems with 2 different other brands and my Gigabyte mother board and AMD A-10 processor. The Ballistic Tactical Tracer stick work like a champ and also have the led lights that you turn on or off if you want, they look great if you have a see through panel on your computer!

Cons: None
