Taking a closer look at TEAM Xtreem RAM
As we discussed in the introduction, TEAM's line of high performance memory is called Xtreem. We left the TEAM factory and moved to their R&D room where we could see how the Xtreem memory is tested along with how the memory heat spreaders are installed.
Being a specialized memory product designed for gamers and overclockers, TEAM has a special team (no pun intended) to test the Xtreem memory and make sure it is up to standard on all the latest high-end motherboards.
The employees inside the R&D room have a real nice job - all day they get to play with all the latest motherboards and then determine which memory settings work best - and just how far they can push their Xtreem memory to the limits.
We were interested to find out how a memory company installed heat spreaders on the module. In photos, here is quick summary of the operation. This is just a demonstration; the heat spreader is not actually physically being applied to the memory in this case.
The installation of the heat spreader is quite simple, as you can see. The cooler comes with double-sided tape and that is used as the adhesive to attach the head spreader to the RAM chips.
Now the memory is completely finished and is sitting in the shipping room ready and waiting to be shipped off to TEAM's customers around the world.
We hope you enjoyed this look into memory module production from start to finish. We would like to thank everyone at TEAM Group in Taiwan for making this happen including Harry and Stu.
