    There isn't much difference... heat spreaders do not do much, case fans do not help a lot.
    It is important to discover why your occasional game locks up... but I doubt that memory temperature have anything to do with it.
    I would put the resources into cpu cooling and better PSU, and more memory if current memory maximums allow it.
