Which heatsink for 13" MB RAM?

Message #1 - Posted 2006/10/05 - Mike Brophy

I just bought 2x1GB 667MHz DDR2 (PC5300) SDRAM for my new 13" MacBook. I've read that Apple's OEM RAM have a larger heatsink to dissipate heat better and that some folks have added heatsinks to their after-market RAM.

Can anyone direct me to where I can find heatsinks for my RAM?

Thanks.

That sounds like what I've read about the Mac Pro, the new tower model. It doesn't apply to any other Macs.
