OCMemory Launches Hynix-Based DDR3-2400 MHz Memory that Stays Cool without Heatsinks

Japanese PC memory maker OCMemory launched a new line of high-speed PC memory that stays cool without need fancy heatsinks or heatspreaders. The OCM2400CL10D-8GBN, launched in the series, takes advantage of Hynix high-density CFR DRAM chips to achieve DDR3-2400 MHz speeds, with timings of 10-12-12-31, and 1.65V, without needing any additional cooling components. In addition to a JEDEC-approved DDR3-1600 MHz fallback SPD profile, it includes an XMP profile to use its advertised speeds. The sticks use 8-layer black PCBs to improve signaling efficiency. The kit includes two 4 GB modules, and is priced at 6,000¥ ($72).

Crucial Unveils Ballistix Low Profile Memory

Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, today announced the immediate availability of Crucial Ballistix Low Profile (LP) memory, which delivers a true low profile design to provide more clearance around high-end CPU coolers and improve airflow throughout the system. Designed for performance enthusiasts and small form factor computer builders with limited space, Crucial Ballistix LP memory features all the performance benefits of Ballistix memory without the height concerns of taller modules.

Since overclocked systems with power-hungry processors are often heat-intensive and require oversized CPU coolers to regulate temperatures, clearance for memory modules is often limited. To address this, Crucial Ballistix LP memory modules are between 15 percent and 35 percent lower profile than competing modules. Using up to 10 percent less power (1.35V) than standard modules (1.5V), Crucial Ballistix LP memory modules also help reduce the cooling problem in high-performance systems, resulting in a lower thermal profile and less fan noise, and enable easier overall system cooling.

New Memory OC Record of DDR3-3900 Set

Swiss overclocker Christian Ney set a new memory OC record, clocking in at 1950.3 MHz (actual), 3900.6 MHz DDR. The record was made possible (apart from great skills), by G.Skill F3-2666C11-4GTXD 4GB DDR3-2666 MHz memory, AMD A8-3870K APU, Gigabyte A75-UD4H motherboard, and a liquid nitrogen pot made by K|ngp|n Cooling. A top performing memory module was picked from nearly a dozen modules. The 1950.3 MHz DRAM clock was supported by timings of 14-14-14-36. DRAM voltage is kept under the wraps. The CPUID and HWBOT validations can be found here, and here.
