    If i put heatsinks on only one side of the RAM stick, what are the chances that it will cause problems?

    1 - heatsinks form DIMMS use CLIPS to attach, so typically you need both sides.

    2 - heatsinks for DIMMS - running at stock speed (even OC systems - the memory is not OC usually) do NEED heatsinks.

    3 - Add-on Heatsinks could retain heat.

    4 - they look pretty
