Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3 PC3-12800 6GB kit

3D Benchmarks

 
3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.
 




 
 


Ubisoft has developed a new engine specifically for Far Cry 2, called Dunia, meaning "world", "earth" or "living" in Parsi. The engine takes advantage of multi-core processors as well as multiple processors and supports DirectX 9 as well as DirectX 10. Running the Far Cry 2 benchmark tool the test was run 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being omitted and the average calculated from the remaining 3.
 

 
Results conclusions

Out scoring both the Patriot and Corsair kits, the Ballstix impressed in the 3D benchmarks. Sadly, the Crucial kit could not match the pace of the Mushkin kit due in part to the fact that the Mushkin kit was running lower latencies.

Let's head over to the conclusion...

Would prefer them in red though.

Jim - get some to match your bloodrage.

Oh crap Jim now has to choose between Dominator GT or these. Both are good so go for the performance ones lol.

For aesthetics then this is the way to go.

Bit pricey tho'.

I ordered a set of the DDR2 for my AM2 system on monday, so as long as they preform as nicely as this lot I will be happy.. and the LEDs look so great.

Too bad that the chips don't have red led's instead of the green.

The red would be perfect for your case!

Do I see another mod happening here?

Haha even I know my limits. Unsoldering those tiny LED's using a gas soldering iron is NOT a good idea

Just keep a fan running on it. It will be OK.

One can only assume that the different coloured heatsinks (Red, Blue and Green) would be matched by the same colour LED's but don't quote me on that.



By that I meant that red would have red led's, blue would have blue. I would like to think so anyway.

I still think Patriot's Viper Series Heatspreaders looks better than gimmicky LEDs. What do they do to help the memory perform better?

They dont, they help the theme of your build

They perform well and look good.
