For a kit that majors on appearance, the Crucial Ballistix Tracer 1,333MHz turns in pretty decent performance numbers. It also clocks up to 1,866MHz, which is probably enough for most people's needs. At the same time, those funky blue LEDs do add a certain pizzazz. If you like lights with pretty patterns, you'll love this funky DDR3 kit.

Never mind the flashing lights, £173 is an awful lot of money for a few sticks of memory. Thus, the harsh truth is that there are several cheaper 6GB triple-channel memory kits that offer more performance for less money. Some also come with superior cooling solutions.
