    Hi all,

    Do the Memory Heatsink's work?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI...m=2014719716_4

    I am thinking of buying 4 of them for my system. Are they really that good for overclocking?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    They look good and add colour but from all the reviews on them have showed very little value. :smokin:

    The only time I have ever noticed ram creating a significant amount of its own heat is during extreme overclocking. Even then it is still not to hot to touch, and so yea memory heat sinks are just gimmics for glitz, kind of like rounded cables and drive rails. Neat in theory, just lacking in actual performance.

    No worries. I am not going to be buying them. They do look pretty for some case mods. I don't know...
