    yeah you get clip on ones but to be perfectly honest, you dont need them unless a. you got a windowed case, or b. you overclock it, but its not worth it.

    btw, in yopur sig you say y gonna get nf3 board, whynot go whole hog an get nf4? cheap enough now.

    Most RAMsinks should come with thermal tape, you shouldn't need any glue.

    I have the Thermaltake Copper sinks, $9 for 8, they come ready to apply. If your RAM is double sided you'll need 16 for each stick of RAM. You'll also want some active cooling, RAMsinks alone won't drop your temps if you're lacking proper ventalation.

    my board, even tho its sparse and not too good an overclocker, is awesme for the money as it is officially on par and faster than nf4 in games, so, you know... but its your choice for the best for you and am i making any effing sense at allll

    Ramsinks are a waste of money. Put a fan on top of the ram and it will get cooled. Most ramsinks actually cause the ram to not get cooled properly. They are mostly for show.
