Ballistix Tactical Tracer RGB DDR4-2666 32GB Memory Kit Review

One of the first ever memory kits with LEDs on them I had the chance to experience was a Ballistix Tactical Tracer kit. LEDs really changed things up with memory adding so much more style than your typical heatspreaders. Now we are seeing so many RGB LED memory kits it might be hard to choose between different brands. The Tactical Tracer RGB is the first RGB kit from Ballistix and I have to say they are some of the best-looking modules I’ve seen. Today we are taking a look at the BLT4K8G4D26BFT4K kit which is a 32GB (4 x 8GB) kit running at 2666 MHz with timings of 16-18-18-38 at 1.2V. Ballistix also has their own M.O.D. Utility which allows you to customize the RGB LEDs as well as see the temperature of each individual module. Can this kit dethrone the G.SKILL Trident Z RGB as our favorite RGB memory kit? Read on as we find out!

Flipping over to the back we can see that this kit is part of Ballistix “Tactical” series, which sits in the middle of their product stack and that we have a limited lifetime warranty.
