No longer are memory modules just green PCB's with black IC's mounted on them. It seems that manufacturers spend almost as much time making the modules look good as they do ensuring they perform equally as well. For this reason, the most popular method of packaging memory kits is in clear blister-packets so that the modules appearance can do the talking when on retailers shelves.
Kingston have been using the the same heatspreaders for all of their HyperX range for several years now. Therefore it's no surprise to see the PC2-9600 modules sporting the very same blue aluminum clip-on design that we first became acquainted with when taking a look at the HyperX PC2-8500 kit.
Due to the use of both double-sided thermal tape and clips the memory IC's make very good contact with the heatspreaders, which should help disperse the heat produced when running these modules at higher voltages.
