[PRO OC] Extreme Memory Cooling: Art Eraser Insulation, Guide by Lucky_n00b

Pro OC overclocker Alva “Lucky_n00b” Jonathan demonstrates how to prepare your system for overclocking with extreme memory cooling using art eraser.

Memory tweaking and tuning can be tricky sometimes, and the difficulty gets ramped up a lot more when we are extreme overclocking the memory, trying to push every last bit of performance out of it.

In this article, I will talk about the procedures I follow before putting the memory modules on extreme cold, in other words we are talking about motherboard preparation. For those of you who never do extreme memory overclocking, this topic might help you get started. If we’re talking about extreme overclocking, we are talking about insulation to prevent condensation from ruining your overclocking session. There are a lot of methods when it comes to doing the insulation, but there’s are two types that I personally use a lot ...

I'd be keen to see what other guys can add to this guide, I for one have no idea what im doing with cold memory.

What i can add is that if u are using eraser it is best to cover the essential pieces like voltage regulators and fets with nail polish ,eraser can and it will eventually create moisture underneath it's layer.

Also first of all you have to insulate the memory stick itself. You can do it filling up the spaces between ic's with eraser or you can cover the whole stick in plasti-dup then use some solvent to clean the plasti-dup from memory ic contact zone. I cannot stress you how important is to insulate the memory stick,when water gets under the ic game is over .

Another thing left uncovered is how to mount a single-sided ram module with the heatspreader. I suppose there are different ways,i personally like using adhesive armaflex on the naked part of the module but you can use eraser or other stuff too,depends on what you have on hand. For instance you can use one layer of duct tape then the adhesive armaflex,after you are finished you can remove easily the duct tape and leave no traces.

Third thing is that u need to seriously lapp the Ekwb pot in order to have good contact with the module,stock finishing is not great and there are more than a few degrees to be gained by lapping and achieving good contact.

Hope this helps.

Just use a bunch of masking tape on the heatspreader on single sided modules. I just tore off, I think it was 12 strips, taped over each other, and that gave adequate distance between back of dimm & spreader.

For me what worked the best was just normal massking tape around the ICs and a piece of blue paper towel at the back.

Best insulation for the memory dimm is ice. Keep it frozen = no issues. Nice guide Alva

So what if you're benching an IC that hits CB at like -20?
It'd be rad if you could add in any differences in your prep.

Too true as I've benched PSC for around 10 hours without a issue and poor insulation

From experience you want the best insulation method you can use and Plasti Dip worked pretty well with nothing but paper and samsung ddr3 d-die at -25c but with vas after a hours issues can start
