The world-famous DRAM module manufacturer KINGMAX presented overclocking DDR3 2400MHz Nano Gaming RAM. It is the unique and the only one DRAM module can be operated at 2400MHz without conventional heat sink. Instead of adding conventional heat sink, Nano Gaming RAM adopts the nano thermal dissipation technology(NTD Tech)to improve thermal performance by 10%. Its bandwidth can reach up to 19.2GB/sec under low voltage which means the performance will be more conspicuously improved in 3D shooting games that involve more rigorous requirements for speed.

Heat dissipation is always the key issue for the stability of system operation. Particularly in overclocking or 3D games, high temperature may easily cause the instability of operation. Targeting the overclocking and game market, KINGMAX DDR3 Nano Gaming Ram adopting NTD Tech increases the effect of heat radiation, it not only keeps the working temperature far lower than conventional heat sinks, but improves thermal dissipation performance by 10%, thereby effectively maintaining low temperature and high stability. In other words, only NTD Tech can replace conventional heat sinks and only Nano Gaming Ram can allow overclocking enthusiasts and gamers to feel free to challenge the overclocking limit.

KINGMAX Nano Gaming Ram not only has excellent thermal dissipation performance, but reaches 2400MHz and provides high speed transfer bandwidth up to 19.2GB/s with low voltage 1.65V and CL value 9-11-9-27. It exhibits great effects of 3D games. Besides that, Nano Gaming Ram has ASIC chip embedded for anti-counterfeiting purpose design to prohibit counterfeiting. Meanwhile, it supports dual channel platform of Intel P55 chipset (2200MHz above), to reach 100% system compatibility and stability, to fully satisfy the high quality requirements of overclocking and game masters.

Nano Gaming Ram series include 1600MHz, 2000MHz, 2200MHz and 2400MHz for different kind of Motherboard and CPU matches. All products have passed not only 100% rigorous tests before ex-factory delivery, but CE (EU), Intel’s XMP certifications and RoHS. KINGMAX memory modules have been well acclaimed by consumers due to their excellent compatibility, stability and outstanding overclocking performance. KINGMAX provides worldwide lifetime warranty service to exemplify its persistence on premium quality and insistence on flawless customer service.

Features of KINGMAX DDR3 2400MHz Nano Gaming Ram:
  • Support Intel P55 Chipset
  • Adopting Nano Thermal Dissipation Technology
  • ASIC chip embedded for anti-counterfeiting purpose
  • Lead-free production process
  • TinyBGA technology adopted: with advantages as compact size, well heat dissipation and low EM interference
  • 100% product compatibility and stability
  • High data transfer performance for overclocking enthusiasts and hardcore gamers
Specification of KINGMAX DDR3 2400MHz Nano Gaming RAM:
  • 240-pin DDR3 2200MHz
  • CAS Latency: 10
  • Bandwidth: 17.6GB/sec
  • Voltage: 1.5~1.8v
  • Capacity: 4GB (2GB x2)

I always thought RAMsinks were more of a fashion statement than actual performance thing. Unless we are talking about those who are trying to get that last 1% or 2%, and even then ambient temps and quality of IC's themselves has more to do with it than anything RAMsinks-wise. Heck, I bought my RAM because the RAMsinks matched my system color scheme and looked pretty spiffy overall. The price, manufacturer, or even the IC quality didn't count as much.

A big part of it is that vast majority of IC's on the market come from maybe 2 or 3 far east producers which are then slapped onto various boards and resold by OCZ, GSkill, PNY and what-have-you as "unique" products, when in reality the only difference between all these products from different manufacturers are the actual RAMsinks themselves. Heck, it has become a bit embarrassing for various resellers that corporations like OCZ, PNY, and similar actually request that some of their IC's be free of any markings at all. No part number, no nothing. That way you can't point out that a stick of RAM from PNY costs twice as much as OCZ one, yet they use same chips/IC's.

In conclusion, go for the prettiest RAMsink. :D

'Voltage: 1.5~1.8v'

1.5v and below is 'low voltage'
Most motherboards will auto configure the voltage if left to Auto in the BIOS. A lot of boards will show 1.5V in the BIOS if the modules aren't running at any XMP profile. Some of those same boards will add a little extra voltage too as features like Intel Turbo ramp up.

The lowest voltage I've seen is Kingston's LOVO series using 1.25 to 1.35 volts. But, no where near the 2400MHz. There's just no way to get past the 1.65-1.68V requirement at massive speeds.

And, I'm sure everyone here is well aware that 90% of the heat sinks are there for looks. A rare few require it for some kind of "certification" or else they get rebinned.

Well 1.65V is NOT low voltage! :wtf::shadedshu
God y'all have never seen d9jnl/jnm 1.65v is low voltage I have run 2.1v for extended periods to push 1800cas6 on older stuff.

This stuff shouldn't need a hs most of them are a gimmick anyway as long as the case has more than stagnant air ram shouldn't be getting god awful hot

must be low heat dissipation on them. I thought the sinks were the norm for stability these days. Guess not. lol.

from features it looks nice, but lack of heat spreader makes it like value ram

That's a big reason why Geil put dragons on their IC covers. They wanted to dress them up without spending extra on things like RAM sinks since the ICs realistically don't need them.

The same thing applies to video card memory. The nicer faster cards have bigger or nicer video memory sinks on them, but they really aren't required. It's ATI and NVidia that require them in order to "certify" them.

The bottom line here is if the Kingmax modules still cost as much as Patriot, Kingston, OCZ, or Corsair, then this memory isn't such a good deal. Low profile heat spreaders are a dime a dozen now. So, there has to be a cost benefit ratio for us consumers in the end. :)

Agree, but I was thinking, maybe I'm wrong, 1.65v for DDR3 is like having 2.2v for DDR2...
I'm talking about wattage and heat here, but again, maybe I'm wrong...
