Where is the link?

Since you mentioned Tracer, I'm assuming either the regular Ballistix or Lanfest limited editons.

The regular, Tracer, and Lanfest..are all the same model, except for the LED features. But yes, I think the Lanfest look better.

But if you were to put these in a Windtunnel, you won't see them unless you mod a window. But you said you're sacrificing the case for these.

ooo, no no no, not sacrificing it. THINKING about moving it back so I can get this limited ed ram first. just asking if it was worth leaving my mobo in it's box a little longer. and I'm thinking about modding the case, but not sure at all. I have no knowledge of how to mod them really lol

That would depend on how long you can wait. It is after all, just lights on the memory sticks.

P.S. - Check your PM inbox. I sent a reply, in regards to the Q6600.

You can cut the price in half with these if you wanted to save money.

That speed would hold him back, if he wants to overclock.

I have the tracers and they look killer lit up. Those lanfest have been around for a couple months already.
