With the response to the Antec Skeleton Case Review in mind, I think it's best to note that these RAM coolers are of interest only for extreme overclocking. (Possibly also for computers stationed inside a sauna or equivalent hot environment.)

For all other (regular) applications TEC is overkill.

I agree, but even the extremely overclocked memories need watercooling or big heatpipe heatsinks ?

Or looking by the other side, why overclock so much the memories if the performance gains are tiny ?

I'd like to have it just for the "coolness" factor. (no pun intended... okay, pun definitely intended)

Considering that TEC typically adds two to three times the heat transferred, that's what really requires watercooling.

This high tech RAM cooler should go well with liquid nitrogen CPU cooling...
