If you read some of my last posts you would know that my duron is cracked and it seams to have affected the maximum FSB i can get. So while poking around my system i found that my DDR was getting fairly warm @ 126MHz (don't have probe so i don't now exacts). I take out the stick and take the chips measurements, then it was off to the chop shop with a bunch of golden iodised 486 heatsinks :) once i had 16 of the damn things cut out, i decided that if i was guna do this that i would do a good job so i lapped them all!! MY POOR FINGERS!!! Now that they were all shiny, I put some past on the bottom and glued them on. On my first boot i hit 133FSB!!! I'll try to push this old duron to do more but i don't have high expectations.
before: Duron 700 @ 888 (7*126)
after : Duron 700 @ 933 (7*133)

Shouldnt this have been "DDR Heatsinks help too warm RAM"?

Not realy cause there seams to be a short in my CPU core that is causeing the ram to heat up :( I tryed a friends athlon 1.2 in my system and we got the memory to 160!! (with heatsinks)
