Kingston FB-DIMM memory with heatpipes

Kingston showed off some FB-DIMM memory modules with heatpipe cooling at the IDF last week:
Yup, those are dual heatpiped FB-DIMMs plugged into a skulltrail system, and they are wearing HyperX livery, so performance is obviously the goal.

They are lower latency FBD/800 parts, lower even than the already quick CAS5 parts that came with the initial systems, and will probably clock pretty well too. Sources at Kingston say these are still being tweaked, but expect production parts soon.
