I was looking for a memory cooler for some time and was hesitant on getting one, mainly due to the fact that I wasn t expecting it to have a significant cooling effect and the fact that I wasn t sure how well they would fit.
Happy to find out that this purchase was well worth the money. I heard that coolers that actually stretch and "snap" on the memory sockets would be to some extent better,,,, well, yes! to some extent. I wasn t sure if I was tightening the thing too much or if was snug enough. Took some experimenting but then all fit in place perfectly.
I was amazed at the level of cooling, especially that my memory modules did not have the fancy heat sinks or fins. Installed on OCZ i7 extreme rams that have the modules sandwiched between thin metal heat dispensers.
Heat went down from 64c to around 38c when gaming (measured with temperature probes of the asus rampage extreme II MB).
Just note that on some motherboards, especially if you have triple channel setup, if the memory modules are spread to far cooling will not be that efficient. And, make sure your CPU fan does allow for the cooler to be installed. I have the cooler master V8 and it fit well, just had to move it a bit off the center.
a definite recommend, and the blue LED glow is very cool.
