Normally at this stage of the review I would be more than happy to rip off the heatspreader to see what's under the hood. However, I don't want to risk damaging my first kit and will hold off until later. My guess is that they are using Elpida or Qimonda modules for this kit as they have been seen in other Patriot Memory products.
