    There's no major reasons to get such high speed DDR3 with heatsinks, unless if you're using an APU or some other memory-bandwidth intensive software. But APUs are budget chips, and pairing it with high priced RAM makes little sense compared to a budget CPU with a mid-range GPU.

    I'm looking forward to the day where RAM comes with heatsinks without busting the wallet...

    If the 2400 mhz ram is cheap, it will be great for APU users :P I hope it's cheap.

    Is $35 too much for 8GB of low-voltage DDR3-1600 with heatspreaders...?

    Beast?? looks like regular old ram..... with an overly sized heat sink.

    And yet Samsung 30nm DDR3 is still cheaper, smaller, lower power, and faster.

    I agree with the OP, super fast RAM has no use except for APU performance.

    I wonder if they've heard of 1.5V ram yet. Their obsession with warranty-voiding 1.65V is stupid.

    I spent $15 for 8 GB of laptop DDR3-1333 RAM. I do not expect little sheets of aluminum to cost more than $10-$15.

    It still costs over $100 for 2 sticks of 4GB DDR2 800MHZ SODIMM memory for my laptop
