I agree heatshreader is the way to go with no hotter than memory gets and good air flow in your case I'd say that would be fine!

I would think the heat sinks do a better job, but most people buy the spreaders because they look cool as hell.

im not sure but on my ocz ram there are 2 clips which hold the 2 plates against the ram and im not sure but is there any thermal type paste underneath those plates. if not maybe ill take the plates off and put some artic silver 5 on each chip then put the plates back on. crap on my asus board its says mb temp is 90 degrees F at times isnt that the temp of the ram or am i dumb.

i dont have a case and my basements cold so ambient temps down here are very nice. but yet i believe ram does get somewhat hot. nothing to perhaps worry about but i wouldnt mind removing the platinum plates and installing some thermal goo.

It all depends how much voltage you're pumping through it. Heatspreaders with some kind of fan blowing right on the ram should be good enough for extreme voltages.
