Default Good memory cooler

My 4Gb of ram under its overclocked stress is getting quite hot... I'd like to help cool it off..

I googled around a few minutes and came to this: OCZ XTC Memory Cooler OCZTXTCC for DDR1 or DDR2 Memory Modules Blue Fan LEDs-Best Computer Online Store Houston Buy Discount Prices Texas-Directron.com

can anyone recommend a good ram cooler?

If you do go the OCZ cooler route be VERY careful when installing that it doesn't touch your graphics card pcb. If it does, It can short the card, and will kill it.

If it does wind up touching, use some electrical tape or something to prevent the metal from making contact.

That all said, it does a good job of keeping the memory nice and cold.

They seem to have a couple here and all are in stock

I'd say they would all be pretty similar in performance. Although it wouldn't hurt to google up some reviews.
