I don't think we are talking about putting on these HS for proformance but for looks. HS on RAM does not help that much if at all. That is why thermal tape is a good way to do it and alot cheaper.


Not true. Sinks help with both Video RAM overclocking around 6%, and system RAM being stable and getting lower timings if not faster Mhz.

However, I agree that those Tt sinks are crap for cooling. You really need individual copper ones. I'm currently in the process of making some out of a HSF, but the Tweakmonster are also okay. Just use the tape, and a dap of epoxy to hold it if the tape doesn't stick well.

Tape should have come with the Tt memory kit. If not, you can buy expensive thermal tape from oline PC shops. You can cheaper, thin (not the 3mm foam) doublestick tap at any office supply store.

The Tt frag tape really isn't much better. As I said, you can order frag tape online.

http://www.highspeedpc.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=HSPC&Product_Code=frag&Category_Code=VCC

However, $12 (you'd probably need 2) and shipping is expensive.
