casue last time i added this kingston ram into my iMac... and well not worth the hassel and the extra $$ to pay for repairs..
Except that after a period of heavy usage, your RAM is 15-20C hotter than properly sinked RAM.I don't know how many times people have to say that it doesn't need that honking heatsink to work.
Would it make sense to attach those heatsinks to the stock kingston heatspreaders, or do they need to be directly on the RAM chips?mistafreeze said:their are these
i was planning on getting the copper ones (top link)
you waiting for something like this?
this should work with those cheap kingstons right? thats what i am wanting to buy.
im wanting to buy 2gbs in a day or so for my macpro
and i dont want to pay over 400, someone else on the forum mentioned that he added after market heatsinks to his and he has had no problems.
i actually use my mac, maya rendering, final cut hd video, photoshop/aperture work all day usually. not to mention i enjoy useing firefox (memory hog) and itunes while im working.
i have never bought apple certified ram, and never had a problem in my life, i dont think buying this kingston ram will matter.
i usually dont go after the cheapest ram possible (the kingston isnt the cheapest from newegg) but their are not that many options, besides the ones that are way the hell up in price.
any ideas? im wanting to get the ram, and add on the heatsinks.
2gb is all i can afford at the moment as im buying several other products.
