    Question Recomendation on cooling this ram kit?

    Decided to go with this OCZ kit after reading as many threads as I could .

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227219

    Any suggestions on cooling before I place my order? Or do the stock heatspreaders do OK.

    The first 4 months you cover your phone and baby it...
    The next 4 months you go commando and relax...
    The last 4 months you treat it like a rented mule, because lets face it its time for a new phone...

    Stock heatspreaders are great, sometimes you can even run well without them.

    I'd recommend trying to see if you can get a fan near them or blowing in their direction. Usually if you have something like a XP-120 or SI-120, and the 120mm fan blowing downwards, that should be enough to cool most ram.
