De mening dat heatsinks op de ram chippies geen effect hebben moet denk ik eens herzien worden: dankzij de AMK heatsinkjes voor de videokaart waren ze bij The Techzone in staat hun geheugen op een GeForce2 zonder problemen naar 400 MHz te zetten (max. snelheid zonder heatsinks 375 MHz) :
The sinks are made of aluminum and use finely cut fins. There are two rolls with nine fins per row. Under the sink you'll find the double side thermal tape. The RAM sinks are sold in single units instead of as a kit. Each sink can cool one to two video card RAM depending on the type of RAM your video card has. On my Elsa Gladiac, each sink covered one memory chip. If you have an older Viper 770 with SDRAM, the sink will cover two RAM units. I needed eight RAM sinks to do my Elsa Gladiac. That's $16 just for cooling the RAM. Is this worth the money? Or is this just a show piece like the Hercules 3D Prophet II? Let's find out.
[...] This is the highest 3D Mark 2000 score The Tech Zone has ever achieved with any video card. Quake 3 benchmarks were off the map as well. How does 87 frames per second at 1600x1200x16 bit color sound? This is a good 25 frame per second increase over the Gladiac running at stock speed. Not bad for a $16 investment!
The AMK Video RAM sinks work really well. There is really no performance improvements going with the taller sinks. The short sink wasn't even getting warm with the RAM at 400Mhz so I doubt you'll be able to overclock higher with the taller sinks. Not that you could go higher even if you wanted to since PowerStrip was already set to the maximum. The taller sinks do look more impressive however and does wins in the "WOW" factor. Other than that, there is really no reason to go with the taller RAM sinks.
