A heat spreader does not always bring the temperature down. Rather than that, it moves the heat from the chips to the PCB, distributes it more evenly throughout the module, and eliminates potential hot spots. Theoretically, this should allow better overclocking.
G.Skill equips the TridentZ5 DDR5 memory modules with an aluminum heat spreader with a matte silver (with a black bar in the middle). The dual-color looks attractive, and it should make this memory kit appear nice in a build.
The total height of the stick is about 42/1.65 inches. That’s a rather low-profile module, so you shouldn’t encounter problems with air coolers, but, as always, we recommend double-checking whether any clearance issues won’t occur before you buy this set.
Ok, here are the last shots of this nice memory kit. The module’s weight is 58 g, so the radiator seems to be very solid.
