I believe these are on sale at MicroCenter for $40
Yeah I bought them at CC for $40 each plus a bonus virus software key
I caved in too.
bought 2 pairs for $80 shipped and declined the CA antivirus cuz it's crap...
Oh it is? I haven't tried it yet.
bait and switch it's only a 6 mo trial...
Just bought two sets at Amazon.Can't wait to overclock and have fun with these.
so not fair, only in USA!!!!!!!!!
Hey what do you guys think of this:
I could pick this up for $10 and some thermal tape for $4 and Just cut them at 5 1/2" for DIY heatspreaders!
Was it erocker who said the don't get hot ?.. And 1/2 inch thickness is way to much even if you could jam them altogether.
My bad ok it's not 1/2 inch thick but still they don't get hot
They don't ship to UK
I'm actually looking to buy RAM atm as well
me too, 2 kits.
Nah it was Paulieg that said they just felt warm if at all.
No this is probably more like putting a spoiler on a Honda Civic.
They just don't look right "stock" in a high performance rig.
Bling vs. A little cooling benefit who knows
Just slightly warm, and that's ONLY during stress testing, when I was putting 1.53v through them. I've had several kits where the heatspreaders were much warmer than these naked sticks. I don't give a damn how they look at all. It's the same thing with cases vs. bench stations. I see the utility and functionality in bench tables, even though they don't generally look pretty. I just don't care.
Yeah...I figured that heat spreaders on these would be more fashion than function...
I have a fan hiding my dimms anyway.
I'll probably do it anyways - less than $20 to get 3 pairs of these Sammys shod.
Back in the day I did have a black on black lowered clear corners tinted 18" rim BMW 325is
Ok did it for $14 shipped - enuf for 3 pairs:
Back to the Super Bowl!
I'll post pics in a week when all the stuff arrives.
Is there a way to monitor the ram dimm temps?
Anyone not caring for the stock look you can either
a: buy these EVERCOOL EC-MC-CO Copper Heatsinks only
b: rip apart some of your ram to take off the heatsinks
I myself am gonna order a and paint them black to match my build. http://www.evercool.com.tw/install/instal_ecmc.htm <-- instructions how to put them on
c:http://www.google.com/products/cata...a=X&ei=0pcvT9_OGYrGtgfoxfHOAw&ved=0CH8Q8wIwCg there are7 or so to choose from happy hunting.Just scroll to the bottom of the page and use the -> arrow!
I used those spreaders on some naked D9s a couple of years ago. However, I'm not sure how well they will install on low profile sticks.
Yeah I've used those copper heatspreaders b4 on some DDR2 Transcend AxeRam back in the LGA 775 Conroe days but wanted to keep this ram low profile so went with the 1/2" aluminum strips, could have cut some copper too but felt like that copper might be too flimsy.
Any way to get them in EUROPE?
Have someone in the US ship them to you?
Just Saturday, I had DDR2-800 Ram, Corsair XMS2 running stable at DDR2-1216 (timings were relaxed to 5-5-5-15), stock volts.
Yea, I know apples and oranges, but I'm just sayin'.
I'm not sure what you are saying. I had a set of Firestixs that would do 1300, but I'm not sure what that has to do with this thread.
If there is some question as to what the big deal is with these sticks, it's that they are really cheap, and really low voltage ram that have a seriously high ceiling. It just makes them interesting and a damn good deal. Simply nothing better in the price range.
damn i want ones, to bad i cant buyem
Yep.. we reviewed these sticks at overclockers.com and found the same results... before those threads.
