Default Ballistix Tracer

I know the Ballistix Tracer RAM was crap and single sided but I heard that now Crucial has improved the quality and made the DIMM's double sided. I couldn't find any confirmation on this on the web and I'm hoping someone here can confirm this for me.

I thought it was only the regular ones that got changed to single sided and tracers always remained pretty good.

Puddle Jumper showed this link that the Ballistix Tracer also went single-sided, but it was never confirmed whether it was a Rumor or not

Checking at XtremeSystems the rumors are proved to be true

As for the new revisions I'm not sure

I ordered my first kit several months ago and just recently ordered my second. The major issue i have is that the part numbers seem to be the same BUT one kit was double sided and one kit single. Meaning the LED's are double and single repectively. Looks corny in my case.
This is from a review of the Tracers on Newegg btw but still not 100% postive if they are double from now on
