Seemingly intent on proving that everything in a PC should in fact be liquid cooled, Thermaltake this week has expanded its WaterRAM lineup of water-cooled RAM with DDR4-3600 kits.
Available as a 32 GB dual-channel/quad-channel kit, Thermaltake’s WaterRAM DDR4-3600 (CL-W262-CA00SW) feature CL18 19-19-36 timings and 1.35 V operating voltage. The modules are based on tightly-screened SK Hynix’s C-die memory chips, a 10-layer PCB, and feature XMP 2.0 profiles for easier overclocking.
The key selling feature of Thermaltake’s WaterRAM DDR4-3600 kit is its cooling system. It includes 2-mm thick aluminum heatsinks on the modules as well as a copper nickel-plated water block with a PMMA cover that is installed on top of the DIMMs. The water block is equipped with G ¼ fittings compatible with the majority of open loop liquid cooling systems. Meanwhile, following the latest trends, the water block features 12 built-in addressable LEDs that can be controlled using Thermaltake’s hardware controller (bundled) or using software from leading motherboard makers, Razer Chroma, and Amazon Alexa.
The manufacturer says that liquid cooling allows them to reduce RAM temperatures by 32% when compared to regular heat spreaders, a claim that has to be tested independently. Ideally, lower temperatures should enable at least some higher overclocking potential and/or improve stability.
Thermaltake’s WaterRAM DDR4-3600 kit will be available shortly. The modules themselves are backed with a lifetime warranty, whereas the water block is covered with a two-year warranty.

Great_Scott - Thursday, August 1, 2019 - linkAt this point, it might make more sense to just have a watercooling-enabled motherboard.
Alternatively, submerging the entire case in mineral oil might be for the best.
s.yu - Thursday, August 1, 2019 - linkWhy not? I remember solutions like that.
SirMaster - Monday, August 5, 2019 - linkThey existed:
airdrifting - Thursday, August 1, 2019 - linkFind me a DDR4-3600 RAM that does not already have heatspreaders, lol
satai - Thursday, August 1, 2019 - linkThe last slide is a complete bullshit.
The low temp is 304.35 kelvins, the high one is 311.45 kelvins. So the improvement is about 2%.
extide - Thursday, August 1, 2019 - linkWell it's a little better than that -- there is a 15-17C delta so there should be a 15-17K delta as well since C is simply an offset from K.
satai - Friday, August 2, 2019 - linkYou are right, of course. I did a typo transcribing it on the phone. Thanks for noticing.
s.yu - Thursday, August 1, 2019 - linkActually it should be significantly better, since they're not using semiconductor refrigeration the temperature can't ever go below room temperature, which unless otherwise specified should be 25°C, which should be defined as zero for a radiator, so 31.2°C should be ~74% lower!
How silly of them to define 0°C as zero on the scale.
PeachNCream - Thursday, August 1, 2019 - linkMore stupid products for the seemingly endless supply of stupid people humanity is pumping out on a daily basis. But eh, someone may as well profit from all of those self-inflicted personal finance wounds.
rrinker - Thursday, August 1, 2019 - linkBright colors AND watercooled? We're really flying now, kids!
