    I was looking at Xoxide for RAM cooling and there are aluminum or copper RAM sink and Thermaltake Active Memory Cooling.

    I was wondering if it is worth getting it and wiring it all up or if the stick on ramsink is just as good?

    The active cooling from Thermaltake is just a RAM heatsink with a fan on it.
    From the reviews I've read, there wasn't much of a difference between the active and passive RAM coolers

    ram cooling is pointless unless you are running like 3.3+ volts through them.
