    Post your Pics of Ram Cooling

    Can everyone post a picture of how your ram is cooled... Would be very interesting to see the various methods use by xtreme overclockers

    Heres mine

    Usually the liquid nitrogen boiling in the container next to ram keeps 'em quite cool

    Just did a couple of aluminium ram-sinks (big ones) with my friend, I guess I could post some shots.

    I dont have anything specific to cool my ram.

    When im running day to day it dosent get hot al all (even at 3.2v)

    When im benching 3dmark I have a 120mm sunon ballanced over my graphics card. This 120cfm beast moves so much air that everything gets some passive cooling. I think thats all I need.
    If things are not getting above warm (25*c) more cooling is pointless.

    The Corsair XMS4000 Memory is cooled with a pair of Lighted 40mm fans on a suspended rack.

    very nice Hilppa , are they copper?
    I made some more basic alluminium ones but they weren't completely flat so some of the IC's made poorer contact with the spreader than I would've liked...

    How are you fixing them to the RAM? If you plan on using perminent epoxie I would make 100% sure all the chips are the same height and your "spreaders" are flat.

    On this rig I will soon install a 120mm fan on the side of my case over the RAM, should be enough I think.

    Dont have any ram cooling at such at the mo. Will have to when I get a booster. Not sure how a fan could be hooked up over my rams though. I'l have to give it some thought.

    the 120mm fan w/ my xp-120 blows onto the ram, keeps them fairly cool

    i'm seriously looking into waterblocks for my ram so i can run a chiller setup on them, i know its extreme but we live in the land of the eXtreme and some nice clocks could be had


    anyone else ever attempted this?

    whats the most extreme cooling you've used on your RAM?

    also a question.... RDRAM (Rambus) is rated as 800mhz, which is faster than PC3200 (400mhz), so why is rambus unpopular? does it perform less than DDR?

    on my A64?
    with my xms3500 i could do 255mhz 2-2-2-11 @ 3.25v
    with my EB i can do 3-2-2-10 @ 3.4v

    but i haven't tried the xms on the dfi board yet.

    max cpu clock is still around 2.4ghz @ 1.8v but thats cause i'm still on stock cooler.

    Those sinks are machined to be pretty flat. Im still working on the way to attach those, but it will not certainly be thermal epoxie because I don't want something like this to happen:



    I tried to take off those sinks that were glued on, with terrible conseqeuences.

    This is my effort I made yesterday afternoon to cool my ram and ddr booster.

    I got some gutter pipe from B&Q and chopped it up with my dremmel and did some plastic welding with my old knackered soldering iron tip... : ) - the fumes get you real high as well for an added bonus! he he...

    I did a run with a temp probe in between the ram with my standard cooling, which is a 120mm fan (you can't see) on the radiator which blows cold air over that direction. At 3.3v running memtest # 5 the temp soared up starting at 25 degrees and in the end I switched the machine off when it hit 60 (ouch!...)

    Anyway, I re-did the run with my cooler in place and low and behold it maxed out at 35 degrees - I left it over night running and this morning it was 37 degrees - so it works well! (well enough for me!)

    The pics are attached.


    Cinders.

    Yes, homemade to fit the MotherBoard mounting holes, suspended on brass sandoffs.

    Simple and yet stunning looks.

    I think you should do something relating to casemodding - It most certainly looks like you have some skills

    I have a blower sitting underneath my ram..... works pretty well, my ram isn't even warm to the touch anymore The polycarb thing stuck at the top of the blower is to direct the airflow.... I couldn't get it to lean over enough to blow just on the ram, so I stuck that thing on there.
