I was just recently looking at some Kingston "Fury" DDR3 memory sticks:

I noticed four different heat spreader colors, black, blue, red, white. I wondered what the difference between them was, so I looked at all four data sheets. The specs are identical (and decent for the price). The ONLY difference is the color of the heat spreader. Guess the gaming guys don't want red memory in a black themed case, right?!

The color scheme is purely esthetic, looks to me! I guess there must be lots of folks with transparent computer cases.

ElfBane:

Yup. That's about what I figured after reading the data sheets on several different series. Based on the number of cases offered with transparent side panels, you're probably right. I suppose it makes sense to have the right color RAM sticks, although I couldn't personally care less as long as they work. But then, I don't go for transparent sides, either. I do have one LianLi A7 case with a screen side though. Great ventilation.
