    After making all HTPC owners happy with the release of Freezer 7 LP, Swiss cooling expert Arctic Cooling has now introduced the Arctic RC RAM Cooler, the company's first advanced RAM cooling device. The Arctic RC features extra large aluminium fins designed for optimal convection cooling, no heatpipes are presented here though. It can be used on both single or double sided DDR2 and DDR3 modules. Also, mounting the RAM sink to your memory modules is fairly easy. The Arctic RC comes with pre-applied adhesive thermal tape that allows you to attach one or two pieces of Arctic RC on your RAM, depending on your needs. One package contains four pieces of Arctic RC, enough for two double-sided modules. The RAM sinks will be available mid May 2008 with a MSRP of US$14.95/9.95€.

    If it's heatspreaders for heatspreaders, I'd love to see these on the OCZ WC-able RAM I'm picking up ;) haha

    I think this was actually intended for ram modules without existing heatspreaders. The lower end stuff.

    Nice, may have to pick up some of these for my d9 chipped value ram (£9 a stick, 1200mhz@cl5 lol), im using some crappy coolermaster copper spreaders i picked up a while back, these look much better, even if they're aluminium

    Very nice to see these, and that they can fit over older HS is a good thing. Too bad my AF64pro blocks the ram slots.

    These are probably VERY cheap to manufacture, but I don't think they're useless though.

    £11.15 now, i got them when they were in the today only section (which they do still appear in now and then)

    I only picked them up as some spares to have laying about, but they work great, so i'll use them till i find a decent 4gb set (or 2:D)

    Yeah, heatspreaders are actually useless, for the most part. It's been proven on numerous occasions that ram runs cooler without them.

    How is that possible? They give a bigger surface area for air to contact, so they sould run cooler.

    Bad thermaltape? I've finger tested my ram after overclocing run and the heatspreders were warm. So they do something right, then again I don't know how'd they run without them :) If someone was to attach heatspreaders with some sort of clamp and some silicon paste, surely it would be better always than without them.

    I completely agree. Heatspreaders do very little for BGA RAM except hold heat in. Just leave them bare and stick a fan over them. Much better idea.
