    Was it erocker who said the don't get hot ?.. And 1/2 inch thickness is way to much even if you could jam them altogether.

    My bad ok it's not 1/2 inch thick but still they don't get hot

    Nah it was Paulieg that said they just felt warm if at all.
    No this is probably more like putting a spoiler on a Honda Civic.

    They just don't look right "stock" in a high performance rig.

    Bling vs. A little cooling benefit who knows :)

    Just slightly warm, and that's ONLY during stress testing, when I was putting 1.53v through them. I've had several kits where the heatspreaders were much warmer than these naked sticks. I don't give a damn how they look at all. It's the same thing with cases vs. bench stations. I see the utility and functionality in bench tables, even though they don't generally look pretty. I just don't care.

    Yeah...I figured that heat spreaders on these would be more fashion than function...

    I have a fan hiding my dimms anyway.

    I used those spreaders on some naked D9s a couple of years ago. However, I'm not sure how well they will install on low profile sticks.

    Yeah I've used those copper heatspreaders b4 on some DDR2 Transcend AxeRam back in the LGA 775 Conroe days but wanted to keep this ram low profile so went with the 1/2" aluminum strips, could have cut some copper too but felt like that copper might be too flimsy.

    Just Saturday, I had DDR2-800 Ram, Corsair XMS2 running stable at DDR2-1216 (timings were relaxed to 5-5-5-15), stock volts.

    Yea, I know apples and oranges, but I'm just sayin'.

    I'm not sure what you are saying.:laugh: I had a set of Firestixs that would do 1300, but I'm not sure what that has to do with this thread.

    If there is some question as to what the big deal is with these sticks, it's that they are really cheap, and really low voltage ram that have a seriously high ceiling. It just makes them interesting and a damn good deal. Simply nothing better in the price range.
