Corsair decided to run some tests to see what the results would be. Today we post up their thoughts along with ours and a couple memory companies. Read on to see how heat spreaders impact performance.
"As expected, all heat spreader types provided an improvement of a few MHz over the same module with no heat spreader applied. Within the heat spreader results, the XMS PRO provided a small performance gain over the XMS and Mesh heat spreaders. This is the result that we expected to see; the additional surface area provided by the larger heat spreader would naturally be expected to dissipate a nominal amount of additional heat....
