i have some HZ and they are decent. i like my xms2 better at the moment, though.
i got pretty good clocks out of the HZ.

I don't have Tracers, but they're basically the same model as the regular Ballistix that I had. And they're awesome, especially for the price it's at, right now. Currently the HZs are expensive in my opinion. So why spend more, when there are cheaper sets, that can do the same? But the HZs are excellent too.

G.skill and ballistix use the same micron chips except Crucials chips are binned for higher specs. Go with any of the Crucials. My tracers look amazing when they're lit up. You'll love em if you get them

I had some Tracers that I had to RMA because the RAM wouldn't pass memtest, lights were really cool but very bright and the colors didn't fit with my other lights. Ended up just getting the Lan-Party Ballistix and they work awesome.
