    I'm perfectly content with my RAM's stock heatsinks. I can take em up to 1000 MHz with 4-4-4-12 timings at stock volts anyway!!

    Nah, you take the stock ones off. Or, I'm sure you can leave them on but it wouldn't be as effective.

    I was just checking these out last night on Thermalright's website, funny.
    There are a lot of people using cooling solutions for their RAM now, especially if they overclock it. Either fans like the evercool or Corsair Dominator Fans, or these. People who use the fans note more than a few degrees difference always, so I'm sure these aren't nearly "useless," especially if you have a good tunnel flow through your case like most well-designed air-cooled case should. Most people note that when they touch their RAM, it's HOT, or at least very warm.

    Designed for the enthusiast? Yes.
    Look Dope? Yes.

    Oh and yes they replace the stock ones, so you have to remove them from the OG memory sticks.
    Also another note, they come in 2 different versions, the H - High Rise, and the L- Low Rise. If you want to use this on 4 sticks in Dual Channel, if you have to have one of each (they stack).

    only reason I asked is because:
    I thought removing the heatsinks voids the warranty?

    From the Thermalright Website:

    Important Note: In order to install HR-07 Duo, you will have to remove the heat spreader on your memory module. However, Thermalright is not responsible for any problems or damages that may occur during the removal of memory heat spreader. Users will be at their own risk. If you are not sure or do not know how to remove/uninstall your heat spreader, please contact your memory manufacturer for instructions.

    These look to be somewhat better than the others I've seen in that the surface area of the fins exceeds the surface area of the stock heat spreaders, so should allow for more rapid heat dissapation on that basis.

    However, I have doubts as to whether the heatpipe is sufficient to move more heat from the heat spreaders to the fins, than just having regular heat spreaders. It does not look like it is long enough to cover all the chips, and there is no indication as to how it is affixed (soldered?) to the heat spreaders.

    It is Thermalright, so maybe it's decent. Time will tell when tests are performed on the review sites.

    I wouldnt think Thermalrigth would make these, if there wasnt a use or need for them. I bet the se cool almost as good as the corsair dominator/ocz fans they got out there.

    j-man stop trolling, it looks really bad on the news pages and really has no point, as always if you don't like the product don't post in its forums (unless it's actually constructive) you've given no reason nor explanation for your opinions.

    as for the product look nice, could stop the whole 680i chipset at 2.4v frying the mem thing.

    they look very nice for 4x Ram or more with the high and low configs, could probably make it better with 60 MM fans on the tall modules.
