Looking at the package for these modules, Crucial hasn't done a whole lot here. We can see that the three modules all sit on top of each other with a cardboard wrap around them that lets you know it's a Crucial triple channel kit.
On the actual plastic we have a sticker that gives us more details on the modules and the size, which is of course 6GB. We can also see that there are three 2GB DDR3 Ballistix modules rated at PC3-12800, CL8 at 1.65V. This kit is labeled as "Tracer Blue" due to it being a part of the Tracer series and of course carrying a blue heatsink.
At the back we can see a bit of a blurb on the triple channel kit. We also have some information on where to go regarding support. Here we can also see a bit more of the module, including the blue heatsink.
Taking the modules out of the packaging for the first time and you're not really greeted with any surprises. Crucial hasn't chosen to include massive heatsinks on the modules or anything else that stands out.
One thing that must be said about the modules, however, is that they look absolutely fantastic. The blue looks great and the quality of the heatsink is excellent. Being a fan of the color blue, these modules really tickled my fancy when I got up close and personal with them. We can see to the left we have the Crucial logo while the right has the Ballistix Tracer logo along with the mention that these modules are DDR3.
Having a closer look at the left side of the modules, we have a sticker that gives us the main specifications. In this case, they're rated for 1600MHz (PC3-12800), run at 8-8-8-24 using a voltage of 1.65v.
One of the coolest features of the Tracer modules from Crucial is the LED lights on top of the modules that love to do a bit of a dance when working hard. The blue LEDs are quite bright, but honestly, they do look very cool.
