Corsair working on sub-ambient RAM cooler

Using Pelt/TEC and a whopping waterblock

Hexus has just discovered that Corsair are currently testing out a mega serious piece of cooling tech for memory modules to bring temps lower than ever, which theoretically should allow heavy overclockers to pump insane amounts of volts (allowing for higher clockspeeds/lower latencies) with a bit more peace of mind.

What you see there is one very chunky waterblock which also includes a TEC/Peltier to help brings temps down to sub-ambient temps. However, they still have quite a bit of rigerous testing ahead of them yet. And depending on how things go, we may or may not see it come to market.

The hardest thing to get around will be condensation buildup, which can lead to a potential death sentence for hardware.


It is assumed that should it make it into mass production, it will likely be further complimenting Corsairs existing enthusiast lineup that we know to be the Dominator series. It will certainly be interesting to see how the progress of this thing turns out. We'll keep you posted as we hear more about it.
