I was thinking of purchasing some heatsinks for my memory because of the extreme heat it's generating. I have PC3200 DDR SDRAM. Just 2 questions for anyone who's used or knows about RAM heatsinks:
1. Do they decrease the temperature by a great deal, or is it not worth buying them?
2. Will they fit into a laptop? Will the heat come through the heatsinks and out of the bottom of the laptop, or do they just absorb the heat?
In collaboration with a cooling pad I hope to reduce my laptop's temperature under load (Dawn of War, mIRC) by about 10-20%.
I don't think they'll fit into a laptop, unless they were specially designed for one. That's because - to my knowledge - the RAM chips for laptops have a somewhat different shape then those for PC's.
they defenetly wont work with a laptop.
The only way to really cool down a laptop is to turn it off evry once in a while. :tongue:
You might want to make sure all your fans are working propery, a slow fan can cause some extra heat build up.
They sell some docking stations with built in fans to help cool things off. Ive seen em befor, but im not sure where to get them.
for a cheeper solution try gettign a stick of the centameater balsa wood and laying two strips down under your laptop. It should create a space under it to promote airflow, but i can only see this being usefull if you dont move it around allot.
hmmm.. good luck
