Cosair ram? Is the platinum really better?

Just wondering I need to buy some ram tomorrow and i'll be getting the 3500 ca2. I know the only difference is the heat spreader but is it worth the $15 difference i'll be paying from the black version? Does it provide any extra cooling for overclocking?

I used to think that heat spreaders on RAM were useless. They help some folks get another Mhz or three Clock Speed. As you are buying what may well be the best RAM on the planet, it looks like the heat spreaders won't hurt anything. Other than your wallet!
When the world will be better.
