Don't often see SODIMM reviews on here. On the contrary, more the better. Means manufacturers are willing to send hardware to Tom's for review and that help's keep people visiting, and funds the site.

How about checking up on SODIMM performance on the Skull Canyon NUC? SODIMMs with desktop GPUs don't really make sense, but that platform offers both a chance for improved graphics and a plausible use case for this set (how does 32GB compare to 16GB? Does the L4 make the difference in RAM speed matter less? et cetera).

I don't understand why this kit has stickers in place of heat spreaders...

I bought the 4x4gb quad channel Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16GB DDR4-2400 set from Microcenter and it has metal heat spreaders.

RAM and the seemingly infinite amount of options and info is somewhat laughable. I did a little homework when I purchased mine- but was still not educated in the reality: that we are talking nano seconds of differences between one RAM stick and another. The price/performance is astronomical. I guess it makes a difference if you have money to burn.

Check out the RAM performance charts with pricing:

Crucial definitely is a reputable company with a proven track record.

We see fake heat spreaders on many SODIMMs. First of all, most memory doesn't actually need heat spreaders. Second, many SODIMM slots lay flat. So, once an engineer has determined heat spreaders aren't actually needed, he can use better fit as another reason to nix them without even mentioning cost savings. Unless he's talking to the bean counters :D
