As seen on the box there are blue heatspreaders in Patriot’s blue. Normally the PCB would be black on their viper range of memory, but for whatever reason our sample’s PCB was green.
The back of the memory includes a sticker with the timings and a nice raised logo reminding everyone that this is DDR3.
The long fingered heatspreader is favoured amongst quite a few different manufacturers, and Patriot have a quite nice implementation. The heatspreaders are some sort of copper alloy based and can be seen through the unpainted side inbetween the two heatspreaders.
And looking down the memory we can see that these are actually one sided memory modules (see the bigger gap on the right compared to the left).
