Are there any programs out there that measure the temperature of the RAM?

Alright I could push my E6600 all the way to 3.66Ghz at 1.4v and stable. But i did not want to keep at the extreme with air cooling. So i reduced it back to 3.41Ghz at 1.36 vcore and stable.(air cooling). Iam attaching pics of all the tests that I ran both Idle and Load. Let me know of your opinions on this setup. I also overclocked my 7950GT from 600/1450 to 650/1600.

A good question. I wish there was but there are no sensors (on the dram) for the ram temperature to be read and no sensors on the motherboard that would allow for the motherboard maker to create an algorithm to read and adjust for the analogue reading.

What do I do? I run a 10 pass test of Memtest. I open the case quickly and lightly touch my finger to the metal ram jackets. If they are very hot to the touch, then additional cooling is needed.

Of course, some RAM has built in sensors.....like mine Visual display scrolls the frequency and temp (mine are running at 29c right now)


That is simply an awesome overclock on that board......

Right, there are a few companies that have such LED's giving you information. These are not sensored on the dram, but on the inside covers. They are built on, rather than built in. One also has to be careful that there is enough room for the Heatsink/Fan Assembly and those RAM modules to play nice together.

True, the Corsair Pro modules I have offer 2 options for the mounting of the panel, offset to either side so they are pretty easy to work with.

Also, I guess one could simply buy a thermal probe and attach it to the DIMM and lace a readout display where they could see it......

I can not get anything above my 3.44ghz to be below 60.1C on load with ORTHOS. Have any of you ever incorrectly applied Arctic Silver and then clean and fix the application to see improvements?
