I don't think they are worth buying unless you are running your RAM at crazy high voltages at high speeds. Anything under 1600MHz and 1.65V don't worry about coolers.

I ran my sticks at 2.3v for 1128 MHz for 2 years and they never got anything more than a bit warm to the touch with the heat spreaders they came with.. You don't need a RAM cooler for newer gen stuff.

RAM coolers are superfluous.

Excellent wording.

Ram coolers with LEDs look cool Other than that, don't worry unless you have 2000mhz plus ram.
