Thermaltake - RamORB


With RAM being one of the main bottlenecks of gaming rigs today, enthusiastic gamers can not help but try to overclock their rigs to try to squeeze every ounce of performance out of their RAM modules. Unfortunately, in a plethora of times when a RAM overclock fails, the RAM stick ends up frying because of the heat. This is where Thermaltake's RamORB comes in. By the look of the design, I imagine Thermaltake's thoughts while building the module were something like this: "Hmm, fans go on CPU heatsink's, why can't they go on RAM modules?" With that though in mind, I do expect it to bring at least a 5 degree drop in the temperatures of the RAM stick. Read on to see how well this innovative product from Thermaltake will actually perform.


  • Orb series inspired memory cooler with single channel heatpipe cooling architecture
  • Superb thermal module, 5cm fan with copper heatpipe penetrating copper fins, allows for
    extreme thermal conductivity
  • Angle adjustable design to maximize mechanical compatibility
  • Aluminum extruded heat spreader provides additional heat dissipating surface area
