Help needed: Ram cooling

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I have i7 920 and I wanna oc to 4GHz. I also have kingston 2x 6GB kit 1600 so total 12gb ram and all 6 slots are filled. I have gigabyte ex58-ud4p mobo with updated F13 bios and I'm wondering when I'm gonna oc that cpu will I need additional cooling on ram so they don't burn with higher voltage? I have haf X case and will prob install nh-d14 on cpu. But d14 will not fit with ram coolers then.

I wanna have my rams at 1333 or 1600

I'm new at this so any advice helps!

Thanks to all in advance.

Unless your RAM is overheating during the OC, there's no need to cool your RAM. The only time I'd think you'd ever need to cool your RAM is if you're pushing voltages that will drastically reduce the lifetime of the RAM anyway.

RAM doesn't need cooling, even the heatspreaders most manufacturers put on for looks only drop temps a couple C. Don't worry about it (unless you're running at like 3v, lol)
