i don't think the paste will improve anything, my default radiators are really hot an quickly...you will gain more by replacing the cooling system as a whole

In my experience putting heatsinks on memory has never helped. In fact a lot of the time it just insulates the heat and makes the module run hotter. I simply removed the stock cooling on my 7800 and watercooled the core. The memory modules are just bare and they OC nicely.
