The GSkill Ripjaws memory is packaged in a tough plastic container which offers reasonable protection during shipping.
We really like the Ripjaws heatspreaders, they aren’t overly large and can be used under a Noctua NH D14 heatsink if carefully mounted. As discussed earlier they are set at timings of 7-10-7-27 with a programmed profile of 2,133mhz.
The thin heatspreader can be easily removed and reattached, by tugging on the underside. The black PCB looks great underneath.
