I guess some kids think that the bigger the heat spreader the better RAM it is. You know, the same kids who think that, i.e. GT 730 is better than GTX780Ti because it has 4GB of ram while 780Ti has only 3GB.

As Linus (techtips) said, it's just a way to charge a premium on the RAM while investing pennies.

Stupidness sells. Colors, heatsinks and stylin are big hot buttons for the technically challenged who would buy DDR4 when it offers no tangible system performance over 1600 MHz. DDR3 LV.
