    In my experiences RAM ram doesnt get very warm. Besides if you have a case with side fans you're already blowing air onto your MB and everything on it. There's your cooling.

    Just on a side note, if you want a system that's gonna own, ya might wanna get a better graphics card (i.e. a FX5900 or a Radeon 9800), cause that Ti4200 aint gonna cut it. Good luck with the system building, : peace2: Mista K6

    ...thats the kit im talkin about, doesnt look like it does alot...this is my first real performance rig and my first OC expirament, so i got no clue how hot **** gets, if i oc the hell outa the ram, its not gona overheat?? (i got 2 intake fans and 2 exhaust fans btw, plus 3 fans for the radiator on the case)...yea a new vid card was also in the plans...i doubt my ti4200 will do very well on half life2 or doom3...lol...i got plans for a 9800AIW or a 5900/5900U....i think im the only person on earth who would want a 5800...i actualy liked the sound of the fan, reminds me of the turbo in my car...but it does so poor compared to even a 9700 its not worth it...ok well thanx for ur help, i guess the fan for the ram is near useless, seeing i got ample fans in the case

    The other peripherals will make little difference in your memory temperatures, but unless you're planning on running the memory at more than about 2.8v, then I wouldn't worry too much about the temps. Anything higher than this power level, however, and I'd probably look into an active memory cooling solution.

    cpu has a probe that the case reads out (koolance watercooled) i got a window it just occured to me i could probably put a 80mm or a 120mm right above the ram if it heats up...id just rather leave that nice plexy alone tho...Darthtanion...if the memmory will run well at lowervoltages i aint gona raise it...but like ocz ram is guaranteed up to 2.8v so i might i dunno ...
