ASUS m3n-ht mempipe - scam?

Last response: in Motherboards

I have the ASUS M3N-HT Deluxe. Am I wronge in saying that this IS the same as the MEMPIPE version but it's without the RAM cooler?

If this is correct; anyone got any idea where I can just buy the mempipe? (I mean the RAM part not the omplete motherboard.) It's as simple as attaching it to the right place and putting in 4 screws. THis is, if i'm correct, what every M3N-HT Mempipe owner has to do anyways.

I've already tried calling places like OCUK claiming I've damaged the mempipe part of my non-existent mobo, in the hopes that they'd let me just by a replacement part.


So, who knows how we can save the community money buy buying the two parts seperatly rather than a whole new unit, if indeed the answer to my first question is 'yes'?

Sorry, as a relative n00b, mind explaining what you're talking about in laymanish? :)

There are two motherboard that appear identical. ASUS M3n-ht Deluxe and M3n-ht Deluxe Mempipe Edition.

THe mempipe edition has an extra bit of copper pipe that you screw on which surrounds your ram slots to provide passive cooling.

If the motherboards are the same, where can we but this extra attachment without having to get a whole new motherboard?

You probably cant, but there are other ram cooling solutions available ie from OCZ and Corsair.

you really wouldn't need it if you have good memory heatsinks. i have the mempipe version and didn't use it because my memory had good heatsinks on it already. Its only good if u have normal value RAM with no heatsinks. Otherwise, you are not missing out. If you really have to have it , you could call ASUS customer service and order one. 1-812-282-2787

I have the mempipe edition...spend the $30 on something like the Corsair Ram Cooler:

As it is I am about to take the whole pipe off (maybe temporarily?) and AS5/reseat because my MCP temp is 70C.

You get any joy out of reseating the pipe? My temps are ridiculously high and the system occasionally shuts
down as a direct result. I'd appreciate some good news on this one, am starting to worry.

Yo tengo un disipador MEMPIPE libre y el resto del disipador.

He intentado quitarlo para instalar refrigeracion liquida y me he cargado la placa, el chip del sistema Nvidia.

Si sigues interesado.

Vivo en España, en las Islas Canarias.

PD. sabes de alguien que sepa como despegar el disipador, para que no me vuelva a pasar otra vez lo mismo.
