Question What do you think of memory cooling?

I was just curious. There are heat spreaders that go over the memory stick, and there are fans/heatsinks that go attach to the memory. The heatsink version looks kinda stupid, but the heat spreader is cool. But what do you think?

I have OCZ memory with copper heat spreader's on both sticks.
I think they look really cool, they also make the RAM feel high quality as the heat spreader is on both sides.

Pentium 4 2.8 with M0 stepping.
Only air cooling tho

They make it look nice, but as far as actual purpose..... retarded.
System specs? Lets just get down to it people:

yea.. Memory does not really get that hot. If it does get hot, then it will not get as hot as a HD or a CPU so there is no need to cool it.

if your goin for a customized look...then yea go with them...but as far as them serving an acutal purpose...they really dont have one besides keeping the memory a few degrees cooler which really doesnt even help...but if your just building a computer to mess around with and not lan with...then i wouldnt even buy em...good luck

i woulden't even buy them. The only reason y i would buy them is if i lived in africa and it was a 100 degrees F there every day and i was running my computer outside all day 24/7 then i would get it. But i mean they dont have a cable modem there do they?
