To get an idea of how cool the T30 is keeping the memory, we recorded the idle and load temperatures of each stick during benchmarking. Our testing environment is climate controlled at 27C / 81F and we used a mini digital thermometer to monitor temps via a temperature probe.
Heat is the enemy of every high end system. Enthusiasts understand that keeping each component cool benefits more than just a specific part. With less heat introduced into the system, the overall operating temperature stays lower and benefits the reliability and longevity of the PC. Corsair's T30 lowers memory temps by about 20 degrees in both idle and load conditions.
