After a massive success of the DDR4 stick we know finally we can overclock specific RAM sticks. But now DDR5 is coming into the market to dominate the DDR4 market. If you want to push your limits on your PC then you can try these copper heatsinks.
The installation method states that the copper heatsinks only work with single-sided DDR5 DIMMs. There’s a thermal paste for the DDR5 ICs, a 0.5 mm thermopad for the PMIC, & a 1.5mm thick thermopad on the back. The memory heatsink comes with stainless bolts and nuts which means that there won’t be any damaged threads. As for mounting blocks, it works with the most common memory blocks and pots (Dominator mounting holes). The kit weighs in at 0.5 kg.
- Compatible with DDR4 and DDR5 modules
- For single-sided DDR5 – thermal paste on IC and 1,5mm thick thermopad on the back, 0,5mm thermopad for the PMIC (there is a special cut for it)
- For single-sided DDR4 – thermal paste on IC and 1-1,5mm thick thermopad on the back
- For double-sided DDR4 – thermal paste on IC from both sides
- Stainless bolts and nuts – no more damaged threads, which makes heatsinks not able to use anymore
- Works with common RAM blocks and pot (Dominator mounting holes)
- 1 set = heatsinks for 2 modules
A single set includes two DDR5 copper heatsinks which are good for two modules. The cost is €80.00 for a single kit which is quite high for the average consumer but overclockers and high-end enthusiasts would be going after these like crazy. With that said, while this DDR5 copper heatsink is great for overclocking on LN2, most memory modules come with heatsinks that are good enough for long-term use and even offer good headroom for overclocking. So if you’re already running a high-end DDR5 kit with a heatsink on, you won’t need this unless you plan to go the extreme OC route.
