DDR2 Ram Heat Spreaders

I am building a new Core 2 Duo system based around the asrock 775 dual vsta board (graphics card reasons - will change mobo and gpu later on but for now this is the board I am getting)

That being said I am also getting this memory

Again no point spending too much when I will upgrade in 07 when I get a new mobo

That being said I would quite like to add some heat spreaders for practical ( I will be overclocking) and coolness reasons

I quite like these blue ones here

http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=417368

But they dont say they are for DDR2 whereas other heat spreaders do

So my questions are these:

1) Will these fit DDR2 memory?

2) IF not can anyone point me in the direction of a UK site that supplies heat spreaders in funky colours not just copper?

Thanks I hope you can help

  1. Your links don't work for us. In any case, most heat just gets conducted away through the DIMM PC board's traces. If you want to add a heat spreader, just make sure it is contacting all the RAM chips on your DIMM.
  2. Heatsinks will become a MUST at 667 CL4 or above.
    533 can get away without them since they arent producing heat.
