I have 4 sticks of 4GB of Corsair XMS3 @1600 with timings 7-8-7-20-2T, overclocked slightly to 7-8-7-20-1T.

Everything is working perfectly fine, but I would like a ram cooler and I need your advice on which one to buy. This memory has tasteful, short heatsinks (no dominator-style spikes). It is however in relatively close proximity to a Thermalright Silver Arrow. Any suggestions?

Unless you're experiencing heat issues, ram coolers are unnecessary imo.
Doubt your ram is much more then warm to the touch..
