Most manufacturer 9600GT's with non-reference heatsinks don't come with ramsinks. Unless you plan on OC'ing your card to the limit, you'll be fine. It's not a hot running card to begin with.

No need...these ram shouldn't be to hot unless you OC them and with the VF and the three hundred I see in your sig you are good for airflow over them
