I wouldnt bother with it. If the computer has decent airflow and if the machine is not running the memory beyond spec (overclocking) then you will never ever need it. Also most of the time, the copper heat spreader attaches to the ram using crappy thermal tape which is very thick so even then the heat transfer is terrible at best. You're almost better not having the heat spreader and once in a while just opening the machine and blowing the dust out of it and making sure the cooling is still optical within the machine.
So ehMac you have added ram shields to your tower?
Where did u buy them, and do they snap together or are they taped?
I was not really sure if they would actually make a diff or not in a Tower as they are supposed to be cooled so well anyway.
I mean "ram is guaranteed for life so you would think that they would design it to vent properly to start with" I thought.... educate me.
Think of how many servers come with cool head spreaders on their ram... Umm I can hardly think of any. Non actually at least none for SDRAM and DDR RAM. RAMBUS needed some heatspreaders but that was in their design spec I think. So if servers that run for years and are packed with ram dont need it, then i'm sure we dont need them
