With expensive memory often come a some extra's. G.Skill offers a life-time warranty with these memory modules, you can't beat that. Look at the heat spreaders, it's fairly unusual to see a design like that. One thing is a sure fact, you either like or hate the aesthetics. The green PCB bothers me a little though. Styling wise that's a missed opportunity.
The heatspreader is designed to enhance heat dissipation allowing better tweaks and overclocks. As a result this is not low profile memory though. The idea is that heat is moved away from the actual memory chips and this increases potential overclocking and stability. And in combo with the Turbulence memory fan the results could be wicked.
The kits will be sold with a G.Skills memory fan to decrease the system temperatures and provide further overclocking headroom during tweaking. The fan is quite silent, but the extra tweak potential always will be a little relative. We assume that if you build a PC with such high-end components, your chassis airflow would not be an issue either. It's definitely a nice stylish item that will look great in any PC.
One note to G.Skill, the compatible ASUS M4A89TD PRO, ASUS M4A89GTD PRO and ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 motherboards are all blue/white themed. How nice would it have been to have matched the DIMMs in the same colors ?

G.Skill Sniper 8GB CL7 DDR3 memory review G.Skill designed another 8GB low voltage DDR3 kit (2x 4GB) that can be set at 1600 MHz yet still run a CAS latency of 7. And that is truly interesting because the denser the ICs get, the higher latency typically gets.
