If you plan on overclocking your ram alot, I'd buy a cooler, heat is the main reason for shorter lifespan after overclocking and for 20$ what are you out. But, if you have a limited budget your better off spending more on a CPU cooler. Also be sure your ram is at least clocked at 800MHz.
Can you give me a link to this RAM fan?
Also no your don't place this on video cards, you already have a fan on video cards. It's primary job is to cooler down the memory on the video card.

Edit: click here You can see the groves in the memory in which this fan would clip in, I'm not overly confident that it'd work on just any kind of ram.

Edit: one review says it's big and will fit over 4 sticks.

I do however think the fan would be your best option though if it'd work, but there is no way of really knowing whether or not if it'll fit. But it's only 20$ so it's your call.

By the way a few GHz is a fair amount. Also as long as you don't push anything real hard you should be fine, keep a close eye on your memory though as people tend to ignore it on the overclock and push it's limits over the edge. I'm planning on experimenting with over clocking as well in the summer. Be sure to read lots before overclocking and to know what your doing, if you don't it's pretty easy to fry things.
