Corsair: DDR5 memory will need better cooling as VRMs moves to the module

Many believe DDR4 and older modules do not generate enough heat to justify the use of heatsinks, but because of some inherent changes of DDR5 memory, it looks like decent cooling solutions will be needed. One such difference is the move of power management ICs (PMIC) and voltage regulating modules (VRM) to the module, generating more heat compared to their predecessors.

"DDR5 conceivably could run much hotter than DDR4. They have moved voltage regulation off the motherboard itself and now it is on the [module], so you actually could be pumping a lot more heat," stated George Makris, DIY marketing director at Corsair.

I wouldn't be surprised if water cooling for ram became a trend for people with more money than sense... might actually look kinda cool though.
