    Thermaltake's Aqua RX R-1 is a waterblock for memory modules. Overclocking the memory, in most cases, is unavoidable when you want to reach a higher CPU speed. Sometimes, the memory might limit your CPU overclock, and that's when you start thinking about cooling your memory, to achieve even higher clocks. Watercooling memory is still in its infancy, but products capable of cooling the memory well are slowly making their way to the market.

    Great review. I saw a similar small % increase in max memory speed by adding ramsinks on an X800GTO... I think the question has been asked a few times regarding memory cooling and OC performance, this is good info.

    I still like the Koolance memory coolers better. Though really, from everything I have seen cooling the RAM better doesn't really help it that much.

    results would be better with lager barbs,a fan blowing on the memory will also do a good job
