Default Chill Vent Memory Cooler

I am not a big fan of the "clamshell" heat spreaders that almost all RAM features because although a good idea, I have found its implementation usually poor. When I peel off the clamshell, I typically find that the thermal tape holding the clamshell to the RAM chips contacts something like 1/3 off the chips' surface. In addition, the thermal tape is so thick that I wonder how effective it is at transmitting heat to the spreader.

in my humble opinion, it would be more effective to peel off the clamshell and use something like the Kool Solutions Memory Cooler to direct air over the chips directly. In use, it fits over the RAM chips:

A no-brainer for hot RAM
