    I guess these are targetted at the "enthusiast" more money than sense willy wavers. I can't really see a point for these, even the highest rated RAM kits can run perfectly fine without active cooling.

    I would still want some though

    It does look cool, and I agree with the comments posted, but I see the real advantage as being able to channel the heat into the water cooling loop, which will no doubt reduce inside case temps.

    What would be good is if they found a way of putting 2 or 3 in parallel so that you can just slot them in to you water cooling loop, rather than have to try to bend the hose round from one DDR3 module to the next.

    Bit of a design floor imho...

    I think the flex series from OCZ are better in design than this. I think the Kingston's tube inlet and outlet are in the wrong position. Also the OCZ flex offer a good heat sink on the memory incase you don't water cool, the heat spreader on the Kingstons looks a little weedy for such fast memory. Also those timings seem a little naff.
