ZALMAN introduced the ZM_MH10, a custom memory module heatspreader set compatible with standard PC memory types (DDR5 and DDR4 UDIMMs of standard height). This should come in handy for those buying entry-level DDR5 memory kits that are bare-modules (lack any form of cooling). Its design involves two 1 mm-thick plates of an aluminium-magnesium alloy that are bound at the top, which has a tiny PCB with six addressable RGB LEDs that illuminate a frosty-white ABS diffuser.
The lighting PCB wires out to a standard 3-pin 5 V ARGB input. The heatspreader plates come with 1 mm-thick and 0.3 mm-thick thermal pads. Both plates include thermal pads, so you can use these with single-rank, as well as dual-rank DIMMs (that have DRAM chips on both sides of the PCB). The thinner 0.3 mm thermal pads are recommended for DDR5 due to the bulgy PMIC components at the center of the DIMM. Each set of ZM_MH10 covers one DIMM, and measures 137 mm x 8.5 mm x 40 mm (WxDxH), weighing 55 g. The company didn’t reveal pricing.
