It's just a heatsink for your RAM bascially.

Depends on what you're going to be doing with the computer, but I don't know how effective they are.

RAM with timings higher than DDR400 will run on a board that only supports DDR400 it will just run it at DDR400 speeds, anything over PC3200 is so when you overclock you can also overclock the RAM higher and dont need a memory divider.

Dont quote me on this im not sure if it's right i just remember hearing that anything over DDR400 is better for overclocking.

Valueram is fine unless your overclocking, and if you do overclock you wnt get very far without a memory divider which will slow your RAM down.

And if it starts heating up just buy a copper heatsink for your RAM, the most expensize one is only $15.
