    After Corsair dropped off some of its latest Dominator 2 DDR3 memory kits for testing with the new Nehalem platform, various sites immediatelly acknowledged that there're some changes in the DHX coolers that cool the new memories. The new approach will be called DHX+ and it consists of a modified thick-sink design where an additional fins are bolted on the top of the cooler. Now HEXUS.net has unveiled that the DHX+ technology will also offer enthusiasts to futher cool the memory by attaching a water cooled TEC block on top. The block appears to be still in development, so we'll have to wait a little bit more until more information is available. The Pelt/waterblock combination should allow extra voltage to be pushed through appropriately selected RAM modules without killing them, potentially yielding higher clock rates and lower latencies.

    Overkill? :ohwell:

    Its a nice concept for your overclockers that overclock in competitions etc, but for your average enthusiast, surely a fan system is enough?

    Before I even looked at this thread that word was in my mind ;)

    Perhaps it's to address something to do with DDR3?

    WTF?

    Thats pointless and a waist of R&D money.

    im not 100% sure here but when circuits are colder the electricity moves at a slower rate. so maybe they are trying to get sub zero temperatures so it could allow higher voltages even tho heat is not an issue for the ram.

    Geeze Louise, TEC cooling on ram modules. If its anything like a cpu, this should really help OCers.

    May not be considering the voltage locks... Whats gonna happen when you push for 6+ ghz on that new quad, might need some TEC for your ram. They will make really low voltage ram that runs warm at low volts, wait till you crank it back up to where its supposed to be at...

    *Just a guess who knows*

    This is useful for one reason: e-penis extension.

    Not only that, you cant raise VRAM voltage with new cpu's as you can with current/older cpu's.


    Current RAM runs just fine at 2.5v on air as well.
