RAM temperature?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I couldnt find any threads regarding safe RAM temperature...

I'm running my RAM at 2.05v right now and during stress it goes up as high as 60C? is it safe to run the ram that hot?

im using my Aerogate to check ram temps btw. goes up to 45-50 (stock @ 1.8v) and 55 (1.9v), so i guess 60's cool too.. btw, do you have a ram-sink on your module(s)?

It's called an "Infrared Thermometer" and you can get a cheap one for $20-30.

If memory serves me right I think the D9 micron has a thermal limit of around 80c or 90c. You would have to look at there site and pull up some of the specs for the ram chips.

Now that is the chips not sure if that concerns the entire ram stick or if thats a safe temp for the heatspreaders since the chips are probably hotter.

Get a fan on them, I have four sticks at 2.2v and they dont get above 42c full load but I have a 120mm fan on them and good heatspreaders.

OCZ, Corsair, and CoolIT all sell one. Just make sure it will fit on your motherboard. There are also ghetto methods involving rubber bands as well.
