    Default RAM Temperatures.... HOW?

    I have had to RMA my OCZ 9200 flex xlc ram (the one with the BIG heatsink and water cooling connections) when one stick wouldn't post. I want to populate all 4 slots with same but after this experience I'm worried that maybe the original stick overheated even though a front fan is directed straight at this area.
    What is the best way to monitor ram temperature? What can i do to improve the cooling? I was thinking of making a deflector rather than fitting another fan. does anyone have experience or ideas?

    That's a good ram and dissapointed that you had to RMA it. Oh well, bad ram do happen sometime.

    Did you over voltage your ram?

    Don't waste your money to get 4Gigs if you're only using 32bit OS. The 32bit OS only can read up 3Gigs and you won't see any performance increase with 1 extra gig. However, you do need at least 4gigs of ram if you're going to use 64bit OS. The Flex XLC only available in 1gig stick.

    Therefore, you won't have no slot left available for future upgrade if you need too. But I think 4gigs of ram is good enough to run 32bit programs under 64bit OS for now, unless you use 64bit pros with 64bit OS then you're definitely need 8gigs of ram. There are not many 64bit software available at the moment for mainstream users but that the future going toward to.

    I don't know if there are any software can read Ram's temp?....but your Maximus board have 2 optional themal sensors, you can buy the Probe Wire Sensor and hook it up to montior your Ram.

    Have you seen the probe wire Sensor? I ask because I'm curious how (where) to fit it.

    I am thinking of vista 64, but is there really no advantage under xp? Ive read about the "3 gig limit" but had thought that the 3rd gig would help, if not the 4th.

    I don't have limitless funds but if you were choosing ram a) for xp and b) for V64
    what would you choose?

    By the way, yes I did overclock the ram (to 1340 ish, by accident) when trying for a superPi score, but generally ran it at 1200-1280. but I kept below the volts max of 2.5 at all times.

    Probe Wire Sensor?....I'm using it!
    You can find it here http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=145&product s_id=20836, attach it to Ram's heat spreader.

    Well, if you were thinking to go with Vista64 then you should get another 2G of the same Ram that you're all ready have. It's a high performance ram, I don't mind to trade my ram to your . My first choice of Ram would be Corsair Dominator, second is OCZ Reaper series. Another 2gig of Flex XLC don't cost more than brand new 4gig.

    I'm run 4gig with Vista64 and most of my software are 32bit and they only max out 30% of memory even while playing games. Unless you using 64bit software or doing a lot of video editing...etc, then you will need more than 4gig of memory.
