offer different colored PCBs like Red, blue, green, black. All copper heat spreader That is bolted to the DIMMs, would require 4 holes thru the PCB to allow this to happen, but this would ensure constant even pressure onto the memory ICs themselves and better heat transfer to the all copper heat spearder. Finally use small fins on the top of the heat spreaders for better thermal conductivity.

Ballistix's would look nice lit up on motherboard and would be easy reconizable

Make it low profile. As low as you can go!
An aggressive XMP profile is expected, but maybe the inclusion of a second, less aggressive XMP profile would be welcomed too.
Thanks for the contest.

Hi, i gave a try for this challenge, but mostly tryed to get an original looking instead of great cooling and low obstruction
so i have the idea of a "simple" piece of alluminium that would be chrome (not full chrome, but more blurry unlike on the renders), then bent at like 2/6 at each sides, and then curved over the stick, with "MIRAGE" text which would be standard plastic stickers, also reflectiv, but differently
here is some renders of what i get :
i think this soft shape give a sexy look to the stick (and won't hurt your fingers when you push it is ^^) + the chrome make it able to match the color of any rigs, because it will reflect it
