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.
The 8 RGB LED crystalline bar (made out of plastic) located on top of the modules is unique and certainly stands out, even today, almost two years after the debut of the Royal series. Now the Elite version makes the bling even more visible.
The total height of the stick is about 44 mm/1.73 inches. That’s a relatively low-profile module, so you shouldn’t have 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 weight of the module is 57 g, so the radiator seems to be solid. The set that has been provided to us is an RGB one, so there is a need to use your motherboard’s software to control the lighting. You can use Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light, or ASRock Polychrome Sync for that purpose.
