A Closer Look At The XPG SPECTRIX D41
The heat spreaders on the Spectrix D41 have ridges that ADATA claim was inspired by armor. Looking at them, I can see it. It does remind me of a sort of armor. Aside from looks, the ridges do serve another purpose; heat transfer. The ridges and valleys increase the surface area of the heat spreaders allowing better cooling for the ICs below. The center design is supposed to be what I’d guess to be a sun with an eye in the center or something like that, however, if I catch a glimpse just right, it looks like a chicken, well to me anyway. At the upper left and right corners, there’s a small triangular cutout in the heat spreader where the LED diffuser can be seen. The top ridge of the memory modules features a plastic diffuser with RGB LEDs underneath.
