kitfit1 Posted March 3, 2006 Posted March 3, 2006 Was just browsing the thread, someone mentioned active cooling on the ram. I usually visualize active cooling being associated with a fan or watercooling & passive being associated with just a heatsink/heatspreader/heatpipe anything that doesn't have to be moved/powered to cool. Just for my own information what are you refering to when you say better active cooling for ram? Is it a fan blowing over them, or better airflow? If there is a strange device besides a heatspreader what do you recommend? I've always heard the ram runs cool enough to not really need a heatspreader anyway and watercooling ram is just a waste of your waterflow and more or less just to show off. I'm very interested what can be done to help the memory perform better. Active cooling on the ram is just placing a fan over it. At default vdimm you don't need it but if your pumping 3.1v+ into it, you do. It gets very hot and can error if it's too hot.
