OK, so we have all heard about burning in your CPU and we know how and why it works.

The simple question here is: what about burning in your RAM? Of course, most peeps have at best some kind of heat-spreader for their memory. But, since I and others are still able to take advantage of the cold winter air (I live in Pennsylvania, and the ambient is about 35 farenheit right now) for memory, does burning in matter? I mean, it would be based on the same principles I linked above, and any silicon circuit would seem to be able to benefit from some burning in @ high voltage and lowest clock speed. So I will try a burn in on my Corsair memory with the max voltage allowed by the P4S333 motherboard.

I will reply to this topic with my experience when I get my stuff from newegg in a few days, but I want to know has anyone here done the low speed/high voltage burn-in exclusively for their memory? And if so, what results did you get?
