Give your system some bling.
If you're a case modder, serious gamer, or PC enthusiast, you want performance and components that make your system look good. With Crucial® Ballistix® Tactical Tracer modules, put your system's memory on display. Tactical Tracer modules feature LED lights and thermal sensors, which allow our custom M.O.D. software utility to monitor temperatures and customize the LED colors and patterns that play out across the module. Touting all the usual features of the Tactical series—XMP profiles for advanced speeds and timings, stylish black PCBs, and a custom heat spreader for improved thermal design and heat dissipation—the Tactical Tracer series is designed to add some serious bling.
Light up your game.
With our integrated and customizable LED light system that's built into every design, Tactical Tracer modules feature activity-indicating LEDs on the top edge of the module to reflect your system's activity level, while ground effect LEDs emit steady light. Switch between red/green and blue/orange LED color combinations on the fly to get a customized look and display. All in real time, you can adjust the brightness of the LEDs, turn them on and off, and adjust LED light patterns.
M.O.D. out your system.
Tactical Tracer modules also feature thermal heat sensors and our custom software utility called Ballistix M.O.D. that allows you to dial into your system and monitor temperatures in real time. Designed exclusively to support Crucial Ballistix high-end modules, the Ballistix M.O.D. utility (Memory Overview Display), allows you to load up your system while also keeping internal temperatures in check. With our temperature monitoring technology, keep tabs on your performance memory and keep your system at the top of its game.
Crucial—quality you can depend on.
Crucial is a trusted name when it comes to DRAM, and that's no coincidence. As a brand of Micron, one of the largest manufacturers of DRAM in the world, we work with our engineers to design, refine, test, manufacture, and support our extensive line of memory modules. To ensure that you get a reliable memory upgrade, we test every single Ballistix Tactical Tracer module in our Systems Compatibility Group to make certain that it meets our exacting specifications. If it doesn't meet or exceed the performance levels that we advertise, then it doesn't leave our doors. Tactical Tracer DDR3 modules are available in the most popular densities and are backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
Are you ready to shed some light on your computer?
The Ballistix Smart Tracer features activity-indicating LEDs on the top edge and ground-effect LEDs along the bottom. Add to it the downloadable MOD utility, and you get the real-time temperature monitoring-and more!
Play with even more bling-customized by you. These Smart Tracer modules are available in either Blue/Orange or Red/Green LED color combinations that you can manipulate in real time, switching up the color options. In addition, select from four different LED patterns, adjust brightness, or turn the LEDs on/off. All of this can be done on-the-fly! Turn on the lights — and turn up your performance — with Ballistix Smart Tracer memory.
What is Ballistix Tracer memory?
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. And, Ballistix Tracer memory is available in variety of colors depending on technology.
DDR3 Ballistix Tracer has been updated with more LEDs (up to 32 total) with one or two rows of 12 activity-indicating LEDs along the entire top length of the module. The wider spacing and pattern moves from the center toward the outside of the module and creates some interesting light patterns and effects in your case. Eight constantly illuminated ground effects lights along the bottom edge will light up your motherboard. DDR3 Ballistix Tracer is available in classic black, as well as red, all blue or all green (PCB/heat spreader/LEDs). Show the world your true colors by picking scheme that suits your style or matches your rig.
What is a Ballistix Tracer DDR3 240-pin DIMM?
A Ballistix Tracer dual inline memory module (DIMM) consists of a number of memory components that are attached to a black printed circuit board. The gold pins on the bottom of the DIMM provide a connection between the module and a socket on a larger printed circuit board. The pins on the front and back of a DIMM are not connected to each other.
Ballistix Tracer 240-pin DIMMs are used to provide DDR3 SDRAM memory for desktop computers. DDR3 is a leading-edge generation of memory with an improved architecture that allows it to transmit data very fast.
To use DDR3 memory, your system motherboard must have 240-pin DIMM slots and a DDR3-enabled chipset. A DDR3 SDRAM DIMM will not fit into a standard SDRAM DIMM socket or a DDR of DDR2 DIMM socket. (Information about which memory technology your system uses is included in the Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool.)
The number of black components on a Ballistix Tracer 240-pin DIMM can vary, but it always has 120 pins on the front and 120 pins on the back, for a total of 240. Ballistix Tracer 240-pin DIMMs are approximately 5.25 inches long and 1.18 inches high, though the heights can vary. These 240-pin DDR3 DIMMs have only one notch within the row of pins, and each technology has the notch in a slightly different location on the module.
