Hi-Tech Reviews takes a look at two alternatives to buying high end memory that comes equipped with large heatspreaders.  Much of the time it is possible to purchase RAM with similar timings and speed for quite a bit less; or even more fun is to buy lower speed RAM and overclock it until it tries to melt.  Picking up a third party cooler ensures that the meltdown won't happen quite as quickly, but the question remains as to whether the high end DIMMs that come equipped with heatspreaders can compete with third party memory coolers.  Find out here.

"Memory cooling is one of those things that most people leave untouched. There may be several reasons

for this: the foremost being that the stock heat spreaders on most memory modules will be sufficient

for most user’s needs. But occasionally, there will of course be users who need to push their memory

to the limit – particularly overclockers and gaming enthusiasts. These users will therein need some

hardcore cooling for their precious RAM. With that in mind I introduce you to the Xigmatek Dragoon and

Cuirassier heat spreaders."
