Ram cooling GTX 1080

So I got a gtx 1080 and both fans started to die so i purchased a ARCTIC Accelero Twin Turbo III and installing, brought down gpu temps alot and super quiet. But
there is no ram cooling besides the air from dual fans, would it be worth it to cool ram with ram sinks. I have some here, but only thing I can think of is thermal tape
to keep them on, not sure if they would be better or worse leaving them bare.

As long as there is direct airflow over the ram it should be fine.

Sure, heatsinks should be better, but the airflow over them from the fans should be more than enough.
