Truly a poor man's memory module with some kick; no steriods, never have to worry for heat. Who knows if it is juiced up more, say 2.2v.
Ordinary price, extraordinary performance.

I was thinking of buying these and seen a review on newegg that said if you run 4 sticks that they are so close together that they overheat and you keep getting bluescreens and shutdowns. They said the heatsinks are that and leave no breathing room between sticks if they are next to each other.

Do you think 4 sticks will be a problem?

Its on a GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS4 Rev. 2.0 if that makes a difference I wouldn't think it would though.

at stock settings they won't crash even at higher temps, memory chips are not as much influenced by higher operating temperatures compared to CPU and Video card; if you start overclocking and adding extra voltage adding cooling to the memory banks will pay off a tiny bit, as extra memory cooling can only do "so much".

I would be overclocking them to 900 instead of the rated 800.

Max voltage I would be running to them is 2.0.

You don't need 2.0 to get to 450/900MHz if you don't want low latency.

oh ya I think I can still do the 450/900 speeds at 4-4-4-12 and 1.8V.

So I take it the sticks being really close together or touching won't matter.

400 4-4-4-12 is the specs; it is possible but not a gurantee. Otherwise, the specs would have been 450 4-4-4-12 1.8V. Think about it.

So I may or may not get the ram to do 4-4-4-12 450/900 at 1.8v it is just a matter of chance I might have to give it 1.9 or 2.0 to get it stable. I just hope it won't overheat. I take it ram has to get really hot before theres a heat problem I really didn't know ram was not effected by heat that much.

I guess I'll try it....
If I order from newegg I have 30 days to stress it out and see if it will over heat at the settings I want or if it will stay stable for long periods.

Or is there another cheep ram that is good that will OC to 450/900. That is around the same price or a bit more. I have been looking at a lot but can't make a decision and the axeram looked good.

Whichever way you starr at your $75, it is still $75.

Another brand is G.Skill that I know of F2-6400CD5D-2GBNQ, it is inexpensive but not cheap which I refer to as "poor quality". I was able to get 475Mhz 5-5-5-15 at 1.9v.

This pair runs at 2.1 V

Promo code EMC925SYME01 to get another $5 off.

Wow easy: too high a temp can shorten electronic circuitry lifespan, exceedingly high temp can even kill/burn it. RAM is affected by heat otherwise why having radiators put on it?

If you overclock, you're operating out of spec: within reason, even if you get the circuits/system unstable, you won't damage it permanently but don't push it.

Anyway, spec/tolerance/rating have only reference and statistical value, in part it's real chance in part is a combination a several related factors, sometimes fluctuating, that get assimilated to chance that makes how far you can go.
