    I really just wish some MFG's would either DFI it (install your own NB!) or offer cheaper boards with JUST mosfet cooling, and let us pop on our own nb/sb stuff -or at least active cool it. I hate having to peel EVERY heatsink off the damn mobo when i want to change the nb/sb sinks.

    Was thinking about heatpiped memory modules a while back.. guess someone else thought about it but got the jump on me in terms of getting the idea out under their name... :p

    An interesting idea, but will probably gain as much market dominance as those memory modules with watercooling heatspreaders attached...

    That's supposed to COOL the chips? More likely to heat them up compared to having no heatspreaders at all. According to my experiences the memory chips heat up wayyyy less than those heatpipe-systems on mobos. Maybe some clockers might find it handy? Likely not as they already have proper memory-coolers and the ones on the mobo will only make it harder (or impossible) to install the sticks.

    Just a marketing trick IMO.

    Well they could always conect all of the cooling together. have the heatpipe conect the RAM, Chipset, GPU or GPUs, then have some huge fan like 2 x 120mm fans cooling the whole thing :lol:

    This would be nice if they combine this with the Asus Blitz motherboard with the watercooling for the heatpipes.

    I'll be honest...

    manufacturers need to accept that the hottest and most troublesome thing on a modern board is the chipset. How about making cooling that does that right and let memory manufacturers worry abou cooling thier own products?

    I'm presuming the voltages at which necessitate those heatpipes are in the 7-20 volts range, am I wrong?

    Agreed :blush:

    The X38 chipset is twice as hot as the latest VIA C7.
