RAM cooler opinions

This morning I woke up running 256 MB of RAM at 100 Mhz. This afternoon I suddenly find myself with 1 GB of PC2100 RAM at 133 X 2.
Anybody think it's crucial to install RAM coolers?

Maybe just have a look at where your other fans are and make sure they aren't blowing the exhaust air near the RAM chips. This one time, at band camp, I saw a board where the CPU fan was blowing onto the CPU then onto the RAM, and they kept dying
