  1. I just sped up my RAM timings--made an AWESOME improvement in FPS :D-but i was just curious whether or not the ram stick itself would get hotter and if i should worry about such. Its got a heat shroud, the only thing i can think to call it, going around the entire stick. Is this enough?

    FPS went to 75-90FPS in BF2 with max graphics and 4x AA :)

    you are referring to the heat spreader, a flat peice of metal that conducts heat from the dram chips and dissipates it over a larger area. it should be more than enough to cool your ram, just as long as your case temp isn't too high. do you have DDR400 or what?
