Right now my cooling setup is a TRUE Black with a push/pull setup using those black plastic fan mounts. It really looks beast inside my case, but the problem is, the first DIMM slot is blocked on my Maximus III Formula. Right now I have 4gb Corsair Dominators, and wouldn't mind moving up to 8gb of ram, but can't utilize all 4 ram slots (isn't this something motherboard manufacturers take into consideration knowing the huge heatsinks people use these days?), and no matter what high end air cooler I use, it looks like I'll have the same issue. So I'm considering getting the H50 just because that would give me access to all 4 ram slots, no problem. Plus, then I'll be able to say I have a water cooled rig (that parts sarcasm, by the way ). But, does anybody have any other ideas\suggestions? I was under the impression using an air cooler like the TRUE with just 1 fan in a pull setup would cause a large performance loss.
