DIMM temperature Sensor question


New Member
Hello. I have a F4-3200C14D-32GTZSW and according to HWINFO64 my DIMM Tempeprature sensor
shows 50-55*C when I play intensive games that involves both heavy GPU and CPU load.

I ran my memory on DOCP 3200 @ CL14 without any manual overclock and from what I've found online
these temps are quiete "high" and might cause stability issues. I don't know any stability issues so far
but the entire situation is pretty concerned. So I have a question. The "DIMM sensor" from HWINFO
is actually reading data from memory temp sensor or this particular memory set doesn't have any sensor
and HWINFO just "calculates" temperature based on some other parameters in the system? Because no other monitoring program able is ready DIMM temperatures except HWInfo.

These values are read from a thermal sensor located on the DIMM module.
50 C can't be that high.

50+C is ~normal for the default (XMP profile) operation. If you wanted to OC it to higher speed with higher voltage then cooling it further would be step 1 before anything else to avoid stability issues.

This is 2x16GB kit right? Meaning there is some space between the 2 modules. Imagine if you had all 4 dimms populated.
Maybe you could improve the case air flow a little.

ThaiphoonBurner software can read many DRAM specs. See if there is any temp limit reported there (I doubt it though).

Mine doesn't have temp sensors. If it had any, there would be a 3rd column next to "DRAM Components".
