Default RAM cooling


Is ram cooling that important when Overclocking?

i plan to use the core contact freezer, or the Cool Master V8, leaning to the v8 cuz of its bling bling look.

You got to have a Fiddle in the band!

Default Re: RAM cooling

I don't feel that it's essential, no. And especially not at that price.

I'm running my RAM above stock with no extra cooling. Just make sure you have good airflow inside your case.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE @ 4.0GHz + TU120E lapped - MSI 770-CD45 AM3 - 2x2GB OCZ DDR3 1333MHz - Sapphire HD 4870 - Samsung Spinpoint 500GB 7200RPM 16MB cache HDD - Tagan TG600-BZ Piperock - (Currently open test bed) - Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit.

You usually don't need it, unless you are having problems. You can usually raise the voltage, instead of cooling, though (yes, I know that a higher voltage makes it hotter).

I've never had any problems with my ram. I see no reason to cool it. As long as it has a heatspreader on it, you should be fine.
