    I've used aluminum heatspreaders.

    Never saw any overclcocking improvement and in one system with one stick of RAM the RAM speed actually decreaesd. Maybe it was the extra ground plane. Who knows.

    I run my ram overclocked without heat spreaders and have never lost a stick yet.

    I'd put in round cables and case fans to improve overall cooling before I ever looked at heat spreaders again. Matter of fact I have 3 sets sitting in my junk box.
