    RAM is one thing I would not watercool. I have not used the Corsair ram cooler, but my OCz did a great job of keeping my Tracers cool in my Phenom Rig.

    Yeah I wouldn't want to watercool my ram. I don't think it would be worth it.

    As long as you have active air running on your ram. it should stay cool. so ocz or corsair dominator air thing both work...:)

    watercooling your ram is kinda overkill its more for eye candy/or if you want to watercool everything you possibly can...ive seen it done. looks nice but i would never do it.

    Not to mention, ram water blocks are generally very restrictive.

    i also see most people running like 1/4th tubing for it as well, just not a thing to do IMO. Unless of course you want a fully watercooled rig.

    Sometimes however a case with a simple loop looks soo much cleaner.

    it sure does. Even just placing a regular low speed fan will cool it enough.

    very nice jbunch, took me a minute to find your power supply. I probably would of put the Micro Res on the right side of the motherboard where the cable management holes are it would free up a little room for the power supply. I agree with the ram, copper heat spreaders are good enough but I do like the OCZ Flex heat spreader under liquid it can drop almost 10 degrees more than the Dominator Fan and 20 more than Passive but there is little to no increase in overclocking potential.

    Edit: very nice phan

    I changed my mind I'm
    Going to get UV tubing that is red to match the Red in the cosmos S..and use black wire sleeves to get the wires in my case more neat. I'll start on it next week sometime.
