Ballistix M.O.D. Utility

One obstacle that memory manufacturers usually encounter when dealing with RGB-enabled memory kits is that the RGB lighting or the effects are not always compatible with the motherboard’s software. Some kits are compatible with Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion or MSI’s Mystic Light; but sometimes they are not compatible with these software and doesn’t work at all. Ballistix come prepared and they have their Ballistix M.O.D. Utility that would enable you to control the RGB lighting effects on this memory stick.

Using the M.O.D. utility, you can control each stick’s lighting effect or sync them all. Currently, there are 12 effects (including static) and you can also choose a specific color using the color wheel or keying-in the respective RGB value. If you ever get tired of the RGB lighting, you can always turn them off as well.

By the way, remember to download the M.O.D. Utility for the DDR4 module. I think there’s also a M.O.D. utility for DDR3, and that’s not compatible with the Tactical Tracer RGB DDR4.

Aside from controlling the RGB lighting effects, the M.O.D. utility can also display the memory’s SPD information.

It can also display the temperature of each memory stick. The thermal sensors on the Ballistix Tactical Tracer RGB are manufactured by STMicroelectronics. They feature B-grade temperature accuracy and supports both positive and negative measurements. There are also some few options when you click on the gear button located on the top-right portion of the M.O.D. utility window.
