In an attempt to cool my RAM down (they run hot), I made a getto mod using the stock A64 cooler fan and an old metal plate from a PCI sound card. It works well! The RAM is pretty much cold to the touch, where before it was very hot. I can probably stick some more voltage the RAM now and hopefully keep tight timings with higher clocks. What I wanna know is what solutions are available for RAM cooling? What does everyone else do? Getto mods rock.

Wouldn't I need to remove the heat spreaders to do this? I think it voids the warranty of my Ballistix.

If you want to step away from the idea of Ghetto, there's always that Neon Crab RAM cooler, you know the one that grasps onto the slots.

I don't mind the getto cooler, but could do with a quieter fan. This is the one from the stock A64 HS/F which is a bit whiny at high RPM's. Also, the Neon Crab thing gets bad reviews!

Pros:

• Bright LEDs
• Unique way to light-up system memory

Cons:

• No overclocking benefit
• Negligible temperature difference with Neon Crab
• Crab "legs" add some stress to the plastic motherboard memory clips
• Crab can easily be bumped and fall-off the memory
