Silicon Power Releases Built-in Temperature Sensor DDR3 1333/1066 Server DRAM Modules

World class memory/DRAM module manufacturer, Silicon Power sets the sight on server class DDR3 DRAM module. Officially released as of today, the modules come with built-in temperature sensors and are made specifically for servers and workstations. Available in 1333/1066 MHz speeds, they are compatible with Intel Nehalem-based Xeon 5500 platform in tri-channel operation. With its built-in temperature sensor, it can effectively prevent system crashes, maximize efficiency and improve overall performances. It is the perfect fit for servers and workstation PCs that require stability, efficiency and processing power.

For serves and workstation PCs, platform stability is always a concern with system's heat production. Silicon Power's DDR3 1333/1066 temperature sensor can be monitored by the system and will address memory workloads accordingly to prevent overheating or overworking the modules. It effectively lowers module temperatures by evenly distributing workloads to ensure maximum system performance and stability.

Silicon Power's server class DDR3 1333/1066 modules fully comply with JEDEC DDR3 standards. Using the latest Fly-by circuit design, it maximizes DRAM and Controller signal efficiency; support ODT technology that effectively reduces signal reflection. Insisting on using original and FBGA packaging modules, it is best suited for heat dissipation and reliability. Silicon Power's DDR3 dual / tri-channel modules are 100% tested to ensure second to none performance and durability. In full compliance with European RoHS standards, Silicon Power's DRAM modules also come with lifetime warranty. Silicon Power's DDR31333/1066 Unbufferred ECC DIMM are available in 6GB(2GB*3) / 3GB(1GB*3) / 4GB(2GB*2) / 2GB(1GB*2) / 2GB / 1GB capacities for users to choose from.

Product Features:
  • Server / workstation DDR3 DRAM module

ok......but how much are they gonna charge for these sticks, kinda dont see the temp censor being very use full to most people, servers yeah, but home users.....meh.

im sure they will have a lovely price boost from having the neat feature tho :)

Will there be only one sensor, or for every chip?

good question!


"Built-in temperature sensor to monitor module temperatures and adjust workloads accordingly to ensure maximum system performance and stabilit"

that implies per module ("chip") but they dont outright say it.

If it indeed is for every chip, it would be awesome, for normal desktop users too. The memory modules are the only components in a computer for which I am concerned temperature-wise. Being able to monitor all of the chips (and hopefully the pcb too) will be insanely handy (for me, at least). Though I'm worried about people who will have 6x2GB...

Now, give us the sensors on non-ECC server ram. I want them on enthusiast parts, so we can test the effectiveness of spreaders once and for all.
