I am finally getting around to Water cooling my Single Sided, Single Rank, B-Die.
I know there will be a ton of people on here that will feel I shouldn't bother. I understand why you would say that, and I respect your Opinion, but I have already committed. So instead of the people who would try to spend their time talking me out of it, I would prefer to get opinions from the people who have done it. I would like to know your experiences with the best Blocks, and reasons why or Why I shouldn't choose a specific Kit.
I plan on cooling all 4 of my DIMMS. They are specifically the G.Skill Flare X, 3200Mhz CL14 Kit. Currently OverClocked to 3800Mhz CL16. On my 3900x I could Hold Perfect Stability at 1.46v, I am finding for whatever reason on my 3950x that its taking a Bit More Voltage to Pass Karhu RamTest to 5000% Without Errors. Specifically its when My Kit Reaches between 54c and 56c that I lose stability. This doesn't happen when My Side Panels are on, because I have Side Intake Fans on my Side Panels which Blow cool air directly at my DIMMS, but I have been in and out of my case a lot lately, and its specifically because I have 4 ML120 Fan's strapped to my Side Panel, that it is a PIA to keep removing it, so I have been keeping it off lately as I keep swapping out hardware, and thats when I noticed the stability issues with my Ram, that I did not have previously.
Anyways, I looked into RAM Block Kits, and as this is an area I have yet to venture into, I was hoping some of you more seasoned Enthusiasts that have ventured into this area could give me some pointers on what to look out for, Kits you recommended, and just tips in general.
All Advice Welcome!
Here are some Kits I am looking at Currently:
Bitspower Universal RAM Module Water Cooling Set for 4 DIMMs, RGB Lighting
Bitspower Universal RAM Module Water Cooling Set V2 for 4 DIMMs:
Alphacool D-RAM Cooler X4 Universal w/ 2 Sets of Alphacool 17268 D-RAM Module (for Alphacool D-RAM Cooler)
And some FujiPoly 1.5mm Thermal Pads, since I am using Single Sided Ram, I think I may need this , but not sure if I should instead just use 0.5mm on the Side with the IC's, and 1.0mm on the Backside without the IC's.
Input on the Thermal Pads very Much Welcome.
