    Looks like another lame way to spend money on something that isn't needed.

    As much as it annoys me to say this, I agree.

    If you like hot running, uncooled ram, sure.

    Its really not going to do that much, seeing as most performance RAM comes with heat-spreaders anyway, and RAM without heatspreaders (BH-5 and stuff aside) isn't usually OC'ed to the point where its going to need extra cooling above the case's airflow.

    There's a fair deal of micron DDR2 that wasn't sold as "performance", but when you can pay PC4200 prices for D9GKX? Hello.

    Besides, this puts a heat dissipating wing in the way of airflow to your performance heatsink, thus helping cool the ram

    Would you pay for it?

    If i found 4x1GB Sticks of well clocking "value" ram which was bare, and these sinks prove to offer some form of cooling performance, then yeah. wedging fans is a PITFA

    Certainly not for what they're going for, no.

    You'd be looking at over £25 for four of these and when you can get something that not only works, but looks fricking cool like the OCZ RAM Cooler for under £15...
