    Got my Crucial Ballistix RAM fan in today. It's very nice. The quality of it is excellent. Nickel plated, foam lined where it mounts to the motherboard RAM tabs and it has a little plastic covering the other side of the mounts to protect from any kind of short. Plus, it matches my RAM. :D I totally recommend this fan if anyone is looking for a RAM cooler. It's around $25 bucks and shipped free directly from Crucial.

    NZXT Panzerbox. Full ATX, space for watercooling and quite small.

    Sexy ^

    I have a set of Ballistix, I didn't know Crucial made a RAM cooler like Corsair and OCZ. Will that only work with DDR 3 ?

    +1 for the panzer box I love mine and I just got it, managed to score one off craigs list for 45 dollars, had a lot of scratches so I painted it, paint is almost dry having a fair amount of humidity ATM.

    I have a Lian-Li PC-A05N, which is like a mATX case but can house a normal ATX board. Something like that?

    It's a sexy case but Lian-Li is over priced and under valued.

    Myself as well, except I have the PC-A05S. It's sure small and looks nice, but the cooling is horrible :ohwell:

    I hardly consider €75 overpriced. Not all Lian-Li cases are horribly expensive :)

    Well, my added blowhole on top does an excellent job.:toast:

    I don't have the tools or skills to do that to mine, so I just run it with the side panel off. It doesn't do too bad like that :p

    Had to replace the fans, went aluminum. This card is very very heavy.

    No, it depends completely on your setup. Some cases (most, actually) don't have enough airflow, and benefit from running panel-less.

    Personally, I don't use a case at all, just a bench station.

    i get both your points, a case with a sidepanel off is proof of a system with poor airflow.

    its also an invitation for shit to get broken, dusty, etc.
