Newegg has 4 different kind of Ballistix, green, black, orange, and red.
Also the red, green and black are called "tracers" but the specs look the same on all of them but the prices are different.

Are they the same memory just with different colors?

I'm not sure whether they use different chips or not but i must say those tracers look cool. Wish i had seen those when i bought my ram.

Tracers have kool functional lights on the modules whereas the Ballistix are just regular RAM. Crucial decided to use different colours for some reason 0.o
