Re: Replacing intel I3 Stock cooler but with what ? for HTPC

had a read about the HR02 macho but everyone said the normal HR02 was a much better HS

seems to beat the older 1156 i7 stock cooler at idle by 5c and nearly 10c at load without a fan thats exellent as this would go on a i3 which is even better as its a sandybridge low power version

Re: Any Low profile ram 1.5V @ 8-8-8-24 times

just bought some 2x2GB low profile Vengeance CL9 1.5v memory as it just came out and found some.

been reading up and theres no difference between CL8 and CL9 on a sandybridge system, well there is a very very very small amount but it would be hard to notice any improvments.

Re: Any Low profile ram 1.5V @ 8-8-8-24 times

Thanks

I read that there's hardly any benefit from cl8 to cl9 on sandy bridge as i can get xms3 memory that is cl9 at 1.5v

Is 1.5v ok for sandy bridge as I have also read that 1.65v is not advisable.
