Ram Overheating?


Recommended Posts

Well I was running prime95 today, I get about 2hours and 20 minutes in and I get an error. It totaly surprised me because Im testing @ 2.4ghz on my Venice, temps never went about 43C and stayed at around 41-42. To say the least Im pissed.

 

Is this probably my RAM getting too hot? I know this RAM sucks for overclocking but if its probably my RAM holding me back from passing Prime95 Ill go and buy some new stuff or wait for this stuff to burn out. I have 2x512 Corsair Value Select 2.5CAS, no heat spreaders if it helps.

 

Thanks in advance

Valueram wont get far on 2.5cas. Try 3-3-3-8 with your current htt or use a divider with stock timings to keep the ram as close to 200 as possible.

It was at 200mhz when I had the divider up, it was completely stock.

I agree, I have a feeling that it still wouldnt pass a 6 hour run of Prime just from the heat it makes at stock.
