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 two rows of eight chasing red and green LEDs atop the module, circulating at varying speeds proportional to usage. A custom-designed circuit relays bus activity to the LEDs, allowing them to accurately reflect usage of each memory module.

I bought this kit about a month ago for my new gaming rig,

Intel C2D E8400
Asus P5K-E w/Wifi
Antec 900 gamer case
PC P&C Silencer 610W power supply
EVGA Geforce 8800GT superclocked
Seagate Barracuda 320GB SATA2

From the start I was getting some blue screen and reboot issue in Vista, I ran memtest86 and windows memory diagnostic only to find that the 2 module were faulty, tested individually in different slot of my mobo. I tried all possible settings, with voltage from 1.8v to 2.2v (2,2v recommended from crucial), I was only able to run these relatively stable when setting to DDR-667 with timings set on auto, which were looser timing then the 4-4-4-12 standard timing on these Ram.

I just switched with some Corsair XMS2 Twinx C4 DDR-800 4-4-4-12 and all my trouble went away.

I don't recommend this RAM to anyone, 2 faulty module in the same package is pretty bad...

Great RAM, great looks, too, LEDs are not needed but nice, the top had red and green little lights and all along the bottom it has a white light on all the time. I couldn't find a better set for cheaper.

This RAM kicks ass, and it looks like nothing else out there, add a lifetime warranty and there is hardly anything that can beat this product. In a couple of months when I move to Vista 64-bit I'm planning to get one more set of these bad boys.
85% of components for my SLI rig I got from this web site. I did a deep and extensive research on EACH and EVERY part of my future computer and I can tell you that I was trying to get the best of the best and still to be on budget under $2000 for the whole computer including large widescreen. And I succeded. Here the what I got:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+
ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe
Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC2-6400 2GB 2X1GB DDR2-800
XFX GeForce 8800GTS XXX
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500GB SATA2
Thermaltake V1 Copper Heatpipe CPU Cooler
Thermaltake Armor VA8003BWS Black ATX Tower Case
Thermaltake ToughPower 750W SLI Ready PSU
LG GSA-H55L DVD+RW 20X8X16 DVD-RW 20X6X16 DL 10X Lightscribe
SoundBlaster X-Fi Extreme Gamer
Saitek Eclipse Keyboard
Logitech G5 Laser Gaming Mouse
Ratpadz GS Gaming Surface
Mitsumi FA404M-BK 7-IN-1 Floppy Drive & Flash Reader
22" Sumsung Widescreen LCD

Note that every relevant part of my rig is 100% SLI certified including the case! I believe there is less than a dosen of computer cases which are SLI/Crossfire certified. I'm adding this week second identical Seagate hard drive and planning to add a second 8800 GTS sometime next year.
So far with this set up I have no problems with any software or games out there. I just completed a Bioshock at full 1600x1050 res and all options set to max. And this is game with one of the better looking graphics out there at the moment. I also played long awayted Crysis Demo which I could play solid at medium settings at max resolution. My 3D Mark 2006 score was 10200 at first try and I haven't even overcklocked my RAM or processor yet.
Very nice components, can recommend them all, do a research on web and see for yourself.
