    ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash storage application products, today announces a facelift of the company's popular XPG line of DRAM modules that gives PC enthusiasts a choice of easily distinguishable performance options in three different stylish heat spreader colors.

    The XPG level of DRAM modules are available in the following heat spreader colors and performance options: blue XPG DRAM modules that run at 1600 MHz with CL11 timing, black modules at 1600 MHz and CL9, and red ones at 1866 MHz and 2133 MHz with timing of CL10.

    According to Ted Tsai, Senior Product Marketing Manager at ADATA. "Top-tier enthusiasts in all countries- from gamers, to power users, to system builders demand not only the best in heat dissipation and long term stability of DRAM, but they are increasingly looking for components that improve the overall appearance or attitude of their rigs. We will make sure our XPG DRAM line meets the demands of these groups, both technologically and aesthetically."

    The innovative engineering and unique appearance of the new XPG heat sinks make them requisite gear for the most dedicated gamers and power users. The sleekly crafted lines are reminiscent of the mechanical goliaths found on today's electronic battlefields. ADATA once again showcases the company's proven ability to unite world-class design imagery with technological advances.

    Availability
    The XPG DRAM modules with this improved heat sink will be sold through designated agents and distributors starting early 2013.

    The green PCB definitely doesn't help the look. If the PCB were black, it might look a little better but then again, colors can only do so much. :p

    Meh if the price is right I don't see why not. Also I really hate windowed cases so looks doesn't affect me at all. ^^
