Loads of modules are really not pushing that far, I can't even get my dominators with 1.65V to 1866MHz. Other than just performance & cooling, RAM is really sensitive and it's the most common part which can cause after a while issues.
    I agree, the ability for a RAM-ic to dissipate heat is really poor. So any overvolting/clocking above spec is likely to just make it fail very fast.

    Indeed :P I had awhile ago a system with DDR2 800MHz and after a few months overclocking the RAM couldn't pull any MHz anymore so I was pretty much limited with the oc on that cpu.

    Water cooling on RAM is mostly for looks.

    It can look pretty good in some cases.
