    cut to size and need to drill some holes with 9mm drill bit then tape with 10mm tapper for the barbs.
    drilling holes so deep is not easy and no way i can do it with hand drill.
    when to a fren's workshop to use his drill bench and spend more then 2hr for 4 holes.

    Nice work Kelvan ... I would have liked to seen the block taped and screws other than the self threading ones to the angles as well but over all I'd say you did a good job ... how snug is the fit on the memory, would a retainer on the angle help apply more pressure to the memory ... of course some stats on the cooling would be nice .... :toast:

    Looks cool :)

    What is the performance like? Can you OC your memory more than with a normal fan blowing over your memory?

    Nice, but totally unnecessary.
