Default What are these RAM coolers

I saw this ad for a RAM cooler, it's this little case for a RAM stick with a fan. I just wanted to know are they really useful... or just a waste for money. Also how will they improve the proformance of my computer.

These are used for when you overclock your RAM.

3 different OS, so yep I\'m confused.

perhaps a little out of date, but it is the basics to overclocking... anywho, i have as you'll see in my sig the thermaltake active cooling for my ram, and i wouldn't stick a damn thing on anything that creates heat if there wasn't a fan with it, i have great airflow in my pc so i don't even think how i'm pushing my ram would affect it, but i plopped it on there and all is well, just a nice little touch to add to your computer, personally i can't say much about it because i'm not really able to test the little 40mm fan or what have you. Having the fan directly over the ram is the reason i bought it.
