Default Corsair TEC-Based Cooling Solution for Memories

During CES 2009 Corsair displayed their forthcoming TEC-based water-cooling solution for memory modules. We were able to take a good look on this system. We saw a system with this solution working. We were impressed to see that temperature on the memory module heatsink was only around 10 C!

hmmm, humidity sensor, first time I see one of these on a TEC product. If they'd make something like that for a NB or VGA memory, then it might be interesting.

VGA memory doesn't benefit at all from extra cooling; VR-Zone poured LN2 over it, no increase in OC.

serious ? I expected it to be more effecient because they do generate more heat.

As far as I know, DRAM is DRAM, lowering the temps from 80C to 20C does help a bit but sub zero temps is superfluous.

Of course, most chips work beter at lower temps, but the decrease in working temperature is not proportional to the increase in (possible) working frequency.
Or better: is it worth spending $100 for a 70Mhz overclock or are you happy with a 60Mhz overclock and a $2 fan ?
