Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer DDR3-1866 16GB Quad Channel Memory Kit Review

Not that long ago we took a look at Crucial’s Ballistix Elite memory and new we are back with the Ballistix Tactical Tracer Memory.  Crucial’s Ballistix Tactical memory sits in the middle of the Ballistix line between the Ballistix Sport and the Ballistix Elite.  Geared towards gamers the Ballistix Tactical Tracer memory features a very cool heatspreader, activity-indicating LEDs on the top edge, ground-effect LEDs along the bottom and temperature sensors that you can monitor with Crucial’s M.O.D. software.  The kit we are taking a look at today is made up of 4 BLT4G3D1869DT2TXOB 4GB modules.  So that gives us a 16GB kit running at 1866Mhz with timings of 9-9-9-27 at 1.5v.  Is this the kit you want in your gaming rig? Read on to find out!
