RAM heat spreaders

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi

Do RAM heat spreaders really make a difference to performance?

I'm after some corsair vengeance RAM but I'm getting a noctua NH-D14 soon and and only the low profile vengeance will fit.
Will low profile vengeance be slower than normal vengeance?

Thanks

I was just in the same dilemma. From what I researched it doesn't make a difference at rated speeds. So I wouldn't worry about it. I just ordered the vengeance low profile myself.

Probably not, my Kingston Ram with no heat spreaders has much better performance then my XMS3's though. i can overclock to 1600mhz or 7-7-7-24 with Kingston while the XMS3 will not boot after that.

Thanks for the reply!

I didn't think it would make a difference. More for looks I think.

Yeah. Most likely so.
