    Ramsinks on OC'd 9800Pro HOT AS H3LL!!

    Well my 9800Pro is runnin solid at 486/350 after adding the 80Watt Pelt and doing a Vmod. The problem is my ramsinks are getting hot enough to fry eggs during gameplay. Do you guys think that the major OC on the GPU is toasting the RAM?? I'm not having any issues but running that hot can't be good. The 9800Pro came stock with no ramsinks at all. Opinions..??

    well,u could pop couple fans on brackets (even fanguards are good for that) and chill them down,along with several other components like plls and mosfets around on de board below...
    there is no way in hell someone whos looking @ a good solid o/c wouldnt do that tis a very simple , basic & ancient feature of de air cooling,yet a lot of ppl rnt into it...i got like 4 fans smartly bracketed above cpu/chipset/etc plus some more lower on de vid card,cant be cooler.all air cooling..

    *edits,pretty soon,if i got time,ill have about 16x80mm fans in there,tis sick lol...i already hear em like a bunch of bees in der..

    My box is pretty well ventilated already. I may be doing a custom job on some video card ram waterblocks in the near future. I want to wait and see what the new x800 series look like so I do not have to make another set. I'll give some direct air cooling a try next though...thx.

    Get TweakMonster Ramsinks, they work!!

    I have 'em and can overclock higher than I could before. I'm not fond of one or two guys that say they don't work. Look at the online reviews, almost every reviewer has seen increases using these things!! I'ts a valid concept, pull the heat off of he Ram, so that it's disapatable (is that a word?) by using a good fan to blow it off. If for nothing, at least they look GREAT!!

    ????? Ummm I have tweakmonster ramsinks installed. I am saying the ramsinks are getting hot as h3ll when I play. The good news is that they are getting hot. Meaning they are doing their job pulling heat away from the RAM. I'm just concerned for their longevity at those temps.

    tweakmonster ramsinks suck

    they're supposed to get hot, because all you're doing is transferring the heat off your ram into the ramsink. the tin coating is insulating the heatsink, and making it real hot. get Radioshack heatsinks or use a fan to blow air over them.

    FYI: too many fans can cause turbulence in a case, actually increasing temperatures. Just blowing hot air around doesn't help, you need airflow. Cool air always coming in , hot air always going out. Blowing hot air on a heatsink is pointless, the air needs to be cooler than the heatsink. The cooler the air, the lower your temps.

    thus strong intake/exaust fans making a killing..air exiting at the back tis too much

    You need air flowing over them. Just because you've added heatsinks to them doesn't mean that they automatically get cooled magically. They will get just as hot since they are really small heatsinks.
