Why water cool your RAM

There are a few reasons to water cool RAM and they are the following. 

Overclocking

People overclock their computer parts all the time, mostly their CPU, GPU or RAM, overclocking increases the performance of the overclocked component thus increases the heat output, water cooling your RAM can be a great idea here.

Low Ambient Temperature

Imagine the room temperature in summer, it’s crazy, right? especially when you have an oven (PC) in your room, combine every component’s heat output and you’ll get a homemade sauna in your own room. 

Cooling all parts including RAM is a good idea to cool down your room and enjoy gaming for extra hours.

Beautiful Look

Water-cooled RAM comes with RGB lights, some people like the idea of using RGB so that’s another reason why you want to water cool your RAM. 

If you worry too much about hear then you should consider getting RAM with good heat sink, they are enough as most people agree that RAM doesn’t overheat like other crucial components (CPU & GPU). 

Conclusion

So, is it worth it to water cool RAM?

No, and if you ask other people, the answer is going to be No as well, the two parts you should be water cooling are CPU and GPU, RAM and motherboard are not that important unless you want to overclock everything and want to reach its maximum point.

You better spend your money on cooling other components or upgrading an old one, unless you care so much about the look of your computer.
