OCZ uses a blister pack, which can be opened without any knife, or injuries resulting from incorrect use of the knife.
Each module has a sticker on it, which gives the rated speed and the stock timings.
The memory heatspreaders are copper colored. They are not really needed to keep the temperature of the memory down, it only gets hand-warm during operation, even when overclocked.
However, having a heatspreader sure helps protect the fragile components on the modules. If a stick falls down, there could be a chance that a small IC breaks off, not with this memory.
Last but not least a heatspreader is sure nicer to look at than the bare memory chips.
