Flexforce Slim PSU Cables - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
I'm seriously considering this now, because they're cheaper than the TCCD, and higher FSB is possible.

Good airflow...The Lian-Li PC7-BPlus I'm getting will have a 120mm in front, a 120mm in back, and a big typhoon on the cpu. Is that good airflow, or will I need to get a special RAM cooler?

No, you don't need a RAM cooler. Those are usually really small fans that don't do as much as you want. I think you should be ok as long as you don't go over 3.4 volts, but if you want to go over, you can just take a standard 80mm case fan and a rubber band and loop the rubber band through the screw holes in the fan and around the notches on the side of the RAM. Easiest way to cool RAM efficiently .

Okay, I think I've been swayed into getting the Winbond.

Do you have any links or guides you can give me on "breaking in" the RAM?

Breaking in RAM is easy. Take a lil program called memtest86, put it on a floppy disc, and boot up with it.

Courtesy of ncsa.

When you boot to memtest it auto starts - pressing C 1 3 x <enter> <enter> starts to loop the test where x is the test number.

Once you have done this it will only loop that test until reset or configured for another test.

Tests 5 & 6 are quicker but 8 is more accurate once you start to settle down the OC and the timings / Vdimm.

So start with timings of 2-2-2-5 at DDR400 with 3.4 volts using test 5 and 6. You'll get a lot of errors at first, but as you loop memtest, they'll start to go away until you get 0 errors. That's when you can start to OC. Use test 8 after you think you've reached your highest stable OC.
