How good is this ram?

this is really the only link I could find for it. It's no longer carried on Newegg.

It's the crucial ballstix tracer. I currently have 4gb of it in rmy rig, and if it's decent ram, I think I'm gonna buy two more sticks of it.

I really like the LED on the heatsinks, I think it looks so neat haha

They are a tad pricey it seems though, compared to how cheap ram seems now adays.

edit: also found this link.

You do know that you can just get 2x4gb DIMM's for $35? Don't see much sense in spending that much for a single 2gb DIMM :\\

It's terrible ram..for the price. For instance, I just picked up an 8gb kit with the same timings/speed for $50. I'd recommend against spending good money on them. They were solid ram when they came out, now they're just overpriced.

I mean..yes. They're at least double what they should be.

No, they're not good performing ram, not compared to whats out right now, in 2x4Gb kits, for a much cheaper price! Your totally paying for the name!

Plus running 4-2Gb sticks, your going to task your memory controller more, than you would with a 2x4Gb set.
