OC Dominator without heat spreader?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Here's my OC result (still using the same BIOS setting. from when my PC was watercooled).


Click to view full size!


4.3GHz with 1.36vcore, 1.375 QPI/Vtt, 1.64DRAM

But this time I removed two of my ram heatspreader due to height restriction (NH-D14).

Ram is running @ 1640 6-6-6-18. Is this safe for 24/7 use? Does heatspreader really make that much difference?

Do you mean the spreader or just the fins on top?

It will be fine, Ive ran my 2000MHz kit with no fins while i had my NH-D14 and had no issues what so ever. They are mainly so the Ram looks cool.

The black spreaders on the side should dissipate enough heat. The fins on top are just for looks, more than anything.

I am convinced 98% of RAM heatspreaders act as heat insulators.

DDR3 uses low volts and don't really get that hot. DDR2 2.1v I can understand. DDR3 1.6v? Nah.

What the rest said. You're fine. The RAM will still be as good.
