Question OCZ Ram + heatsink Questions

I just got my hands on 1GB OCZ DDR 3200 Value Ram, and boy is it bloody good!!! I'm thinking about ocing to get the mythical 2-2-2-2-5 latency down, but was wondering whether or not it is worth trying to get ram heatsinks and how hard are they put on ram. Because i once bought a couple of 512 sticks and they got static DEAD!!! And i'm kinda nervous about putting heatsinks on the ram because it cost me a bit of cash and don't want a chance of ruining them. THe stuff bets the corsair value ram by a mile...

theres one too many 2s in there.

Also "its bloody good"...how so exactly? Have you overclocked them or what, because if all you've done is just put them in your system and let them run at stock I would consider that enough testing to label something good already.

RAM heatsinks = thermal sticky tape on the bottom of the things and you just put it on the RAM chips. simple as that
