Increase Ram speed = Higher CPU temps Tags: CPUs RAM Last response: March 19, 2011 12:03 AM in CPUs Share marko1045 March 18, 2011 11:44:42 PM I noticed that when I increase my ram's speed from 1333mhz to 1600mhz it increases my CPU's temp from ~38deg to ~48deg. Why does ram speed affect the CPU temps so much?
