Default G.Skill Announces GT1 4GB DDR3 Memory Kit Featuring Thermaltake RamOrb

Yesterday, G.Skill announced the 4GB PC3-16000 GT1 Series memory kit, which comes with Thermaltake RamOrbs pre-installed.
"Taipei, Taiwan - 16 October, 2008 - G.Skill International Co. Ltd., a world leader in extreme performance memory with solid quality, today unveils a whole new 4GB (2GBx2) GT1 DDR3 series running at PC3-16,000, featuring the unique Thermaltake RamOrb heatsink design. This thermal solution enables an optimal stability by keeping the temperature as low as possible at extreme speeds. The new PC3-16000 GT1 Series provides extreme stability and performance for high-end gaming or an overclocked PC.

The Thermaltake designed heatspreader features dedicated heatpipes to effectively draw away heat produced by high-speed DDR3 memory up to the cooling fan and fins. This organization maximizes thermal conductivity providing the most powerful memory cooling solution on the market.

The G.SKILL PC3-16000 GT1 is optimized for the cutting edge NVIDIA 790i chipset platforms. The new GT1 is a all-encompassing solution making the leap into the next generation of platforms with its lightening fast performance, enhanced timings, and innovative heat solution unmatched by the competition.

That is pretty silly. I hope that heatpipe is reversible, because otherwise you're going to have half your RAM slots left empty.
