The packaging has a nice window featuring the stylish heat spreaders, and demonstrating the size of the ram. I am speaking from firsthand knowledge, it is important to know the dimensions of your prospective components. The dimms on Most major boards are very close to the processor socket, and large heat-spreaders can prevent you from using a desired cooler if you don’t do your research.
The exterior packaging highlights the components contained within, however do not provide much in the way of technical specifications.
The interior packaging is slightly different from the standard blister pack i have seen from other manufacturers, the tray is a little more functional and less of a nuisance.
A Closer Look:
The Ram itself looks rather intimidating.
The Heat spreaders are screwed onto this ram, I really appreciate this as it would allow you to remove them if necessary for space reasons, or if you were attaching a third party cooling system. Some other manufacturers glue their spreaders directly onto the chip greatly discouraging their removal.
Ram is pretty standard, once you get past the heat spreaders there isn’t much to see. Lets see whats under the hood.
