Heat sinks for ram?

Does anyone know if putting heatsinks on my memory will able me to overclock my memory? I'm getting artifacts at 435 mhz. It's a apollo 5700 le 128 card. GPU is running stable at 450 mhz. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks

they can help slightly but you usually find that the reason memory chips are hot is from heat transfered through the pcb from the core, better cooling on the core may yield better results

i can tell you for a fact that you will be able to get a higher OC on the memory, but by how much, i dont know.
