Geil Ultra DDR3
The module heatspreaders have a slick look but feel a bit plastic. I have not found a way to get the heatspreaders off without possibly damaging the modules, so I can’t tell you what Intergrated Chips (ICs) we’re looking at. The potency of these chips will get clear when we get to the overclocking section of the review, though.
As you can see the ‘Hyper Gunmetal finish’ has a mirror-like effect if you look closely. Personally I would prefer a non-standard coloured PCB, say black or red, because this makes a bigger difference in style presentation than some barely noticable effects on the heatspreaders. On the other hand there isn’t much to see of the green PCB when the modules are installed.
The specifications label. It also shows a bit of the ‘plastic feeling’ I’m getting with the heatspreader used.
