Default Noob question: is there a program that tells ram temp?

Well as the subject states I am looking for a program that tells ram temp (that is if there is such a thing)

Nope. I've used a cheap $10 digital indoor/outdoor thermometer... and put the thermistor on the side of the heatspreader. While it won't give you the chips' temps... it's good enough to tell you when/if your RAM is running hotter than usual.

If you don't have heatspreaders, an IR gun could be used. Of course, that approach is kind of self-defeating where temps are concerned. Beyond that, you need to get some kind of sensor up against the chips, which isn't exactly easy, or even possible some times.

Am I the only one whose getting tired of these threads by this guy?

Asking questions which have no little to no relevance at all to anything.

Its like he wants to simply increase his post count.

Your running a stock system with little to no overclocking and you seem so overly afraid that something is going to go wrong with your system and nothing will!

Quit stressing out and just leave your system alone.

Apparently..yes. If you don't like his questions... don't answer. Nobody's forcing you to reply. You can see who created the thread before you even open it. Simple, really.

Easy, brother, We were all noobs at one point, and what is the best way to find out about something? Ask questions. You did it, I did it, we all did it at some point or another. That is what these forums are for; to help, ask for help, and once, and a while, friendly smack talk.

Don't worry you aren't alone, I answered the first few, and now I normally just ignore the threads. He should just start a thread saying "GameplayWarrior's special questions" and edit his one post as he decided to add more.

Edit: These are all questions asked by Gameplaywarrior… except for a couple (I think just the sleaving questions) they are all New threads. This list of questions from Gameplaywarrior only goes back as far as October 16, 2008, but trust me the list dates back further….
