Default Put on ram coolers?

I just replaced my gf4 ti 4600's fan (died). It's ram was passively cooled and I'm wondering if i should throw on the new ramsinks that came with my cooler (vf 700 al-cu) or just leave them to be cooled by the fan.

bonus for keeping them off would be that i can use them later on something else

hmm well im not sure how much it would do, unless that computer (im supposing its a backup or extra home system?) has bad airflow/cooling. maybe u should just pop 'em on to be safe. but the cooler should do well, so i dunno its up 2 u.

Leave them off and use them elsewhere. I experimented extensively with RAMsinks on the NV25 and NV28 (GF4 ti) and never found RAMsinks to increase performance by more than 5MHz.
