mkay thanks for the help. if you guys can give me some other suggestions on why they have these heatsinks for the ram i don't get what they do besides move the heat. is there a better performance?

#1) They look cool (seriously!).
#2) They have a bit of a heat-sink function. However, most memory chips these days are packaged in plastic, which doesn't conduct heat very efficiently. Thus, most of the heat from the memory chips is conducted through the metal traces into the mothboard and away that way.
