Ultimo_Posto Posted March 16, 2013 Share Posted March 16, 2013 Hello! First post :D: I have previously built a fanless LGA775 system that worked well, but now I am looking to build a fanless LGA1155 system which means I am looking for DDR3 memory with passive heat spreaders. I understand that memory is not the most significant heat producer in a system, but I am looking to maximize my heat tolerance through all means possible, and so I would like to understand a little more about memory and heat generation. Question 1: Does corsair publish how much heat their modules produce under idle and full load? This may help me decide which models to buy. Question 2: For a given type of RAM such as DDR3, how does temperature scale with capacity? ie. how much heat is generated by an 8GB module compared to a 4GB, 2GB or 1GB? This would help to determine whether eg. 2x4GB produces more heat than 4x2GB, but also the heat penalty for installing more overall memory. Question 3: Is there any data on heat generation as a function of RAM timing and clock speed? I would be prepared to buy slower memory if the heat saving was significant, so some knowledge would help a lot. Thanks a lot! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
