    Japanese PC memory maker OCMemory launched a new line of high-speed PC memory that stays cool without need fancy heatsinks or heatspreaders. The OCM2400CL10D-8GBN, launched in the series, takes advantage of Hynix high-density CFR DRAM chips to achieve DDR3-2400 MHz speeds, with timings of 10-12-12-31, and 1.65V, without needing any additional cooling components. In addition to a JEDEC-approved DDR3-1600 MHz fallback SPD profile, it includes an XMP profile to use its advertised speeds. The sticks use 8-layer black PCBs to improve signaling efficiency. The kit includes two 4 GB modules, and is priced at 6,000¥ ($72).

    "The sticks use 8-layer black PCBs to improve signaling efficiency."

    Is it because of the 8 layers of PCB or is it because the PCBs are black.

    It's because they're black.

    I never bought RAM with heatspreaders for the cooling potential, I thought they simply made it look cooler ;)

    1.65v? So for safe use in AM3+ and 1156, I guess. Unless I missed something (it is almost 4AM).

    I wonder what happens if you do put a cooler on them? Do they go to freezing temperatures?

    most DDR3 modules hardly need heatspreaders on them.
    also, black is a bad color when you want to keep things cool. black absorbs heat radiation instead of radiating it.
