Maybe I should not have used the word "harm" but you get the idea

looks like they attach via springs rather than tape

maybe with out using heatspreaders

Edit : it says it is designed to work with the Dominator sticks but it looks like it might just mount the the ram sockets..don't know though.

I got these pure copper heatspreaders for my RAM and love them. The clips are tough and will hold the thing on with AS5 probably. But I'd still like use the adhesive on one of the chips so that it really stays:

One problem, though, these people take forever to ship. It took them like a week before I got the UPS tracking number.

Well, active cooling always help but that fan looks like it's for looks, usually a 90mm to 120m fan helps better, except people has to make some modifications in order to put a fan of that size close or near the modules when installed in the board.

IMO, cutting a whole on the side panel and putting a fan there would be very well efficient to keep any modules running cool.

the big problem with manufacturers atleast it use to be and its getting better but they would jsut put a thin 1/4" strip o fthermal tape along the modules and it would keep the restof the ehatspreader spaced away from the modules so you only got a thin section doing heat transfer and the rest was essentually insulated

now atleast on my ddr2 they are covering more of the modules so it works a little better, older companies like ocz did pretty good with there ddr modules,

the one benefit of the covereing sincs is it helps protect yoru ram a little bit but i would just nstall a couple of fans over your ram somehow and call it good

I think most heatsinks are just like that to be honest.... personally, I don't perceive RAM as being a really overheating item easily....

However, you do have the option to install some nice aftermarket heatsinks or something like that if you so desire.
Yeah unless they are overvolting, heatspreaders are not really needed

I do have the 250mm Fan on my armor case. It dose a good job of generaly cooling everthing in its path, Which is quite a lot at 250mm but the ram is borderlineine on the airflow from this fan at least.

I only have one 120mm intake fan. was thinking about putting another one in front. My only concern is that I have 120mm going out through the top Blowwhole, one 120mm and an 80mm blowing out through the back. I think you want negitive pressure in the case with more going out then comming in.

If I mount another 120mm infront it will mess up the CFM #'s....My best guess on these not counting the CFM on the zalman 9700 is that I have about 140 cfm going out and about 80 or 90 comming in. this is the first time I have tried to calculate this so I could be way off. I don't really know what the CFM is of any of my fans but I was guessing they are between 30 and 50 CFM.

Sorry to wonder off course just kind of typing out loud also once my V-6 stinger is ready I will be WC CPU but in the mean time I'm using the zalman.

I bought the Dominator Airflow Fan for my set and it keeps it pretty cool in there. If anything pick something like this up maybe the new OCZ one with two 60mm fans. THE CRAB COOLER IS WORTHLESS just so you know...

The only RAM that really needs heatspreaders is BH-5 or massively overvolted D9...
