Arctic Cooling has introduced the Arctic RC Pro RAM cooler for DDR2 and DDR3 memory modules. The company claims this aluminum heatspreader can lower the temperature of your memory by up to 50 percent. The heatsink measures 126mm x 76mm x 1.5mm (L x H x D) and weighs 74g. The product is expected to be available in retail stores next month for $9.95 (6.95EUR, excl. VAT).
Following the design concept of the award-winning ARCTIC RC, this Pro version also features long aluminium
fins as well as highly conductive thermal pads. The fins are extended to 5cm which lead to a significant
increase in heat transfer area and optimized natural convection.
The pre-applied thermal pads efficiently draw heat out from the RAM to the fins. The ARCTIC RC PRO is
securely assembled by 3 screws. By giving high pressure to the two heatsinks, thermal pads will firmly lay on
the modules for best heat dissipation.
While a generic heat spreader has only limited cooling effect on the RAM, the ARCTIC RC PRO powerfully
lowers the temperature by 50%*. Such unparalleled temperature reduction extends the RAM service life and
boosts overclocking to a new level.
Installation is easy and can be done in just two minutes. The packaging is precisely designed for positioning
the RAM accurately on the ARCTIC RC PRO. After fastening 3 screws, users can start enjoying the improved
RAM performance brought by this revolutionary cooler.
The ARCTIC RC PRO is compatible with single or double sided DDR2 and DDR3 SDRAM modules. It is also
compatible with the RC Turbo Module – an add-on cooler with two 60mm fans for those who are looking for
extreme RAM overclocking.
