The Dominator memory cooler looks pretty good,http://corsairmemory.com/corsair/dominator.html

Is that really even necessary? If you have half-decent airflow through your case you shouldn't need to worry about your memory. It's not something I would waste my money on anyway. Kinda like those hard drive coolers. :p

actually my memory gets REALLY hot so, i bet this would help alot.

Hard drive coolers actually work. The ones with the fans that sit under the hard drive. I used to have one and got a 15c drop on my hd temp.

Some memory requires high voltage levels to run optimally, thus generating a good deal of heat. Having a fan directly over the memory extends their longevity and for some manufacturers, keeps them under warranty.

hmm, I might consider that, since Im thinking about getting 2 gigs more for y rig, that cooler could come in handy :)

Great Looks, do you know the price???

Yea nowadays memory gets to burning level when you push some voltage to it.

I would say we are almost at the level of needing some sort of active cooling on the memory to acheive higher frequencies with DDR2.

Neat, it looks so sexy too. I might consider it, depends how much it'll cost.

Thanks for the link vandalous. One thing about Atacom is that you can never tell if something is in stock or not. The price isn't bad though.

One thing about it though, that cooler looks like it might be noisy.

Drawing air through all those little holes and postioning fan blades close to them will problably add noise.

Unless the fans are running some pretty low rpm's.

My local bestbuy has the Antec Spot Cool (http://www.antec.com/us/productDetails.php?ProdID=75018) fan which is like a 80mm fan on a flexible stalk that can be attatched to a case or mb mounting screw.

I thought about buying one for memory cooling and just running it at its lowest speed. Should be quieter than a dedicated memory cooler and just as effective.

I have the Dominator memory cooler but I don't like how it fits ,I guess it would be better if I had the room to put it on ,but with the Evga 680i ever thing is in that spot ,the main power plug and the 4 pin power plug ,your Front Pannel Headers and I not overclocking the ram right now so I don't really need it.

The Cosair air cooler is 13 and the OCz is 17. The corsair has 3 40mm fans and the OCz has 2 60mm fans.

I've never seen this product before, but I like it alot. The fact that it comes with a flexible attachment is perfect for pinpointing those hard to reach hot spots. I'll be looking for it my next visit to Best Buy.

How does this compare to the Corsair cooler?

Looks like a good idea. If you run anything above 2.2V on your DDR2, you will need some extra cooling a little closer to the RAM. I think I will give one a try since they are only $18.
