I was wondering if aluminum or copper RAMsinks are worth the money for overclocking video card RAMs. Sure they're only $3 each, but I don't want to spend $25 for 8 pieces of metal that won't improve anything but the looks. (OK, maybe I would.)

Would someone with first hand experience with RAMsinks mind posting the before/after limits?

Ramsink will help you to overclock 0mhz-20mhz more than using nothing. Copper will be better than aluminum, but it cost alot more. Just buy your self a pair of thermaltake ramsinks, they cost much much less than tweak monster's, and they look pretty nice.
You can alway make your own ramsinks, just find a old heatsink that you dont use, cut it in 4 or 8 little squares. One more thing, I suggest you use Arctic silver adhensive, since it does way better job than stander thermal tape.
