Too many wires to just be a thermistor. More likely it's an Active cooler that may or may not incorporate a temp. sensor, and the wires go to a controller/monitor unit that would normally sit in a 3.5" or 5.25" bay. | Report abuse ChipDeath March 16, 2006 3:14:59 PM Quote:hmmm, does ddr2 require a powerplug?RAM uses so little power compared to graphics cards and other add-in cards, so no, it doesn't. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>memory power plugs?> Related ressources: ForumI got a new case for my Acer but I can't find the power SW and some other plugs ForumEarth bonding plugs + anti-static mats...
