The first thing that is apparent with the Tracers is the fact they come with the new style of heat spreader which is much better aesthetically than their previous version. I like the clean edges of the product.
There is not much in way of specs or timing info anywhere on the sticks, the closes thing you get is knowing the fact it is lead free (so ROHS complaint) and EPP ready. As mentioned before I would like to see the timings posted here but thatís just me I suppose!
The logo on the side of the Tracer stick is the same as the previous versions with the older style heat spreaders.
At the top of the ram we have the gap for the activity lights in two rows, these are really just for appearance but as I mentioned earlier those buying these sticks over the regular Ballistix will be purchasing them because of this. Let us move on and see how they fair up in the performance stakes shall we.
