Does the C30 require the use of memory chillers?

The C20 line required memory chillers for 4GB or more of RAM per processor. Since there is no reference to memory chillers in the C30 maintenance manual, are none needed, even with lots of RDIMMs?


The C30 has four slots per CPU rather than eight, giving DIMMs more room for airflow.

Hence it does not require memory chillers.
