RAM heat spreaders, how are these?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Considering to buy some to help me overclock my pc2700 ram.

VANTEC ICEBERG DDR-A1C RAM Heat Spreader
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835110105

How do those seem?
Any other suggestions... my budget is probably $15 per heatspreader. I prefer to buy from newegg.com because they accept money orders, lol I don't have credit card since I'm under 18.

Thanks.

those seem as good as any others, but the thermaltake active cooling ones seem to be good too, it has a fan on the heatspreader...

then get some extra heatsinks for the other sticks of ram....

Thanks, I like the thermaltake ones, since it has active cooling.
Might buy those.

Edit: Do you think the fans are loud though?

Hmm....
Max. airflow: 5.1CFM
Noise: 23dBa

Might be better just to have one of my 80mm fans blow on the rams instead.

ya either or will work, the fan built in looks pretty good, and 23db isnt very loud, but ya the airflow isnt much. it would be pretty easy to put an 80mm u have on the ram sinks... but its your choice....
