I would suppose your XT has passive ram cooling (i.e. no fan on ramsink)? 5900 Non-ultras or Ultras heatsink/fan will cover the memory too, so the load temps are going to read much higher because of the spreading of heat. On XT you won't get a readout of ram temps, and in some cases touching the ramsinks may even lead to a burnt finger. ouch!
