    You don't need the new Redline modules... the memory is the same, just different heat spreaders with more surface area. If you're going to be using active cooling for the modules, then you'll be fine.

    You should give the sticks you have a chance before you replace them. Since overclocking is never guaranteed, you may have some really good sticks there, or average. If they don't overclock well, then sell them and look for newer. Otherwise, you may pass up on some really nice stuff that you already have.

    I am sorry, there is a misunderstanding. I do not currently have redlines. I am getting some this Friday, I currenty have Kingston value ram. DDR 400 PC 3200. I thought If I was going to get new ram ( Redline) I should get the new heatsink version

    There's a big misunderstanding...

    I thought you had the Redline, and I was suggesting you get the new heatsinks for them seperately (assuming Mushkin sells them, and I'd bet they do), not replace them altogether. If you don't even have the RAM yet, then you should certainly go for the ones with the new heatsink.
