The only reason I like heatspreaders on fan is to reduce thermal cycling stress on the solder balls.

Maybe it's just my case, but I have plenty of air blowing over my RAM anyway.

While since most textures are stored on the graphic and memory RAM, a faster speed would allow for faster framerates. Assuming your memory was a bottleneck.

Except even fast DDR2 wouldn't be a bottleneck for most set ups.

They say buy me.

Hehe tongue.gif well, it would look pretty dumb with an Intel WC loop in there, and blue leds.

Although matching a black Asrock mobo + Asus Mars II + that RAM *drool* biggrin.gif


P.S.: The source is abbreviated as HH ? Oh god.

They look nice. I've heard of GeIL, but didn't know they were that popular.

True that, it isn't strictly necessary although, my RAM sticks do get kinda warm (even with heatsink). On my rig anyway.

My samsung get a little warm too at 1.6v, but if they aren't burning you it's likely they are about 50 degrees, which really isnt that bad.

heat sinks do nothing, pull them off, paint them ur Favourite colour and put back on, just dont aply paint to cantact area, thumb.gif then ur ram can be any colour of the rainbow, or all at the same time tongue.gif

Meh. My Corsair 4x8GB set is at this same speed and the timings are better. Corsair wins in the RAM department. Geil is a good company, but I don't see how this is news. I have had my Corsair set for almost 6 months now.

FYI my corsair sticks run 2133 @ 1.5v with 9-9-10-24 and 1T timings 24/7 running WCG all day biggrin.gif

Yeah, but this review isn't about that. Because, these aren't 8Gb modules, these are 4 times 2Gb modules.

That said : I think it's about the factory overclock you get, and the "gold" art.

I get that, but these Geil Black Dragon sticks are nothing new. They have been doing the same design for about two years. I am pretty sure the LED's are not new also. Like I said Geil is a decent company, but this is hardly "news".
