Packaging & A Closer Look
Silicon Power sent us two of its 8GB XPOWER Turbine modules, each rated at 3200MHz.
Each module comes sealed in a blister pack.
The card in the pack serves to show some basic specs in several languages.
After a rather infuriating few minutes, we were able to extricate a module from its wrapper. It doesn’t open easily, so be prepared with some sharp scissors to cut your way in. The card in the middle opens up with some instructions on how to install the module if you need help.
Once you finally get the modules free of the packaging, we can finally get a look at the beautiful rich blue heat spreaders.
The modules are pretty much the same on each side, with one side hiding a medium-sized label.
The label on the heat spreader is metallic and very reflective and the XPOWER logo in the middle is almost a mirror.
