    Don't tell me someone's designed a TEC system that actually works efficiently??? It'd be a first imo.

    DDR3... with a TEC? WTF? 95% of DDR3 will run perfectly fine without even heatspreaders, let alone gimmicks like this. I'd laugh at those with watercooling, let alone anyone who bought this (in more ways than one).

    It's worse than the hopelessly pointless northbridge heatsinks.

    If they want to sell crap like this, then they should do a proper test. See how far you can clock it, then with the same sticks (so no special review samples) remove all the über cooling crap and clock it again.

    Grr.

    Re: News - Corsair TEC to take DDR3 to new (and colder) heights

    Just looks like an expensive gimmick, from what I've been told DDR3 runs perfectly fine with just air cooling without the need for all of this, so I can't see why anyone would have a need for it.

    It all looks very OTT with very little point.
