Default Mushkin ditches Green Heatspreaders for EM Series.

I got my 2GB set of Mushkin EM-6400 in today and I was shocked to discovered the green heatspreader was replaced by silver.

Here is a pic that I took with my camera phone. Don't mind the crappy quality.

My first Mushkin HP DDR400 kit was silver heatspreaders (they should have been blue heatspreaders).

Yes, they all should.

My current set (RMA replacement for the silver ones) are blue.

My point was that occasionally it seems Mushkin uses silver instead of the normal colored ones...maybe they run outta the right color?
