cooler master ram sinks.

  Mysticnas 10:06 23 Apr 2003

just got some cooler master cooper RAM sink coolers a few days ago.

just wondering if there's anything i should now before i put them on?

oh and i have brought 2 packs. there's 8 sinks in each pack. i have 2 stick of 512 DDR ram. there are chips on both sides of the sticks. so what is the best way of putting them on.

i mean i don't have enough sinks to cover all the sinks on both ram sticks. so do i:

A) cover only one stick completely?

B) cover only one side of both sticks?

C) cover both sides of both sticks on every other chip?

much appreciated...

Should there be a fourth alternative?

D) do you need them there at all?

My 1GB of RAM doesn't get particularly hot and any heat it may generate is taken care of by the case ventilation.

This is not meant to be facetious, I am interested to know if RAM overheating is a real problem as I have never found it to be so.

i'm going to overclock... :o)

thats why i got the heat sinks.

when i clock my CPU the memory clocks too.

so i don't wanna burn it out.

I hope we dont't end up with fans on the RAM as well, floppy drive heatsink & fan?, USB 2 card heatsink & fan?..
