Pros: It's NOT made of plastic (well the fans are but the main structure is aluminum). Very good airflow. My RAM is OC'd to 1066MHz and operating at 2.3V (i know that's high, but those were Kingston's specs for my RAM) and stays nice and cool with this cooler. Chars your fingers without it :) This cooler covers all 4 sticks (8GB) of my Kingston RAM. Memory and cooler match. Cooler adds a few more blue LEDs to my system which is always nice. Fit nicely in my mini ATX case, even with a large aftermarket CPU heatsink. Reduced my system temp by 6C (from 40C to 34C).
Cons: this item should be bundled with the purchase of Kingston RAM
Overall Review: Buy this. The space between the fans of this cooler and the top of my RAM is enough that it would work with extremely tall RAM heatsinks. If, for some strange reason, you're not using Kingston RAM, don't worry. This cooler is still compatible. It attaches to the outside of the clips that lock your memory to the mobo so the size and shape of your RAM heatsinks are not a factor.
Pros: Solid aluminum design. Easy installation. Looks nice with all the blue LEDs in my rig. Blows air across the DIMMs, north bridge, and nearby caps.
Overall Review: The cooler is just slightly wider than a full set of DIMMs. They sit just above the Corsair Dominators. They sit very firmly even despite being moved over 3/4 of an inch to accommodate the Zalman 9900 cooler that sits right next to it.
Pros: Great fans, can barley hear them running
Keeps my ram about 38C
Overall Review: The blue lights are enough to lite up the whole case

Pros: 17c-20c temp difference on my 4x Kingston HyperX 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800
Cons: Lights are just a bit too bright.
Larger than it appeared, a slimmer design would be much better.
Overall Review: Had to modify the lower bracket, as I had to push it over away from my Zalman 9700 CPU cooler, which pushed it into my ATX power connector...so basically I had to make a 90 degree cut on the lower bracket to make it fit correctly. (Now mounted to only 2 of my 4 RAM slots)
Asus M4A77D motherboard, I'm sure higher end MB's will have better compatibility.
(This isn't so much a con, as my personal experience with the product)
Pros: It gets over and on top the CPU heatsink in my MSI 880GMA-E45 with AMD X4 925 95W CPU, stock heatsink. Plenty of airflow - if anything, too much airflow, could have used smaller fans to cut the noise a little....
Cons: TOO WIDE for 4 memory slots - probably it works fine if you have an Intel MB with 6 memory slots. It is very tall (gets in the way of hard drives and optical drives, do not plan to use all your case bays if you use this cooler), and its fixing mechanism is a joke - do not plan on moving your computer too often with this cooler installed, it may not stay in place.
Overall Review: Does its job - keeps the memory cool. Wish it had RPM reporting capability, so you do not have to open the case just to check on the fans, but it is solid, and should work for a while. A little too heavy for my taste - would not want to shake the computer with the cooler in place, it may rip off the memory sockets.
Pros: Good looking memory cooler. Matches my blue led fans and power supply (1 KW KIngwin Modular). I have 6 sticks (12 Gigs) of Kingston HyperX DDR3 2000 memory and it covers/cools all of them. As a bonus, it also helps cool the northbridge on my Asus Rampage III Extreme by 8 to 10 deg C.
Overall Review: Worth the money for funtionality and looks in my Thermaltake Armor+ full tower case.
Pros: 1. Very well designed
2. Speedfan 4.4 shows it pushing 3000RPM's
3. Design allows fit with VenomousX and other sizes
4. Lights up the dark area in the case since they dont make powerful PWM fans (for cpu) with LED's
Cons: 1. The airflow to the RAM could be competing with the Tower HS for the cpu. See note!
Overall Review: This is such a great product that I hate to through in the caveat but the proximity to the Tower HS's for the cpu making this potentially problematic. These type of RAM coolers would work best with the Liquid coolers like H50 or Coolit, since they are not fighting with the same air space as the cpu fans which are on the radiators and somewhere else in the case. Other then that it is a great product. Also this is the final piece of my DIY and Newegg came through with flying colors for this build. Others can compete but they cant beat Newegg.
Pros: Keeps my ram coooool!
Overall Review: If you game...you need this!
