Some Cooling Questions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello All!

I just completed my first custom build, if you check my signature (if it shows it) and I have a couple cooling questions.

First off, I have my cooling setup as following

Intakes: Top (1/2 slots), Bottom(1/2 slots), Front, Side
Exhaust: Back, Top (unused fan slot).

question is if I put intake fans in the empty top and bottom slots, can I get more air to the motherboard? Or will it be ineffective.

Second question, anyone have experience with ram coolers, like the kind that you stick on to all the ICs on the motherboard. I saw a 10 pack of Zalman ones at Microcenter, they were designed for the ram chips on graphic cards, but they look like they will work. Do they actually do anything?

I'll probably have more questions later on, as I continue to modify this system.

My name is Galciv12 and I am a cooling freak.....I want my system to double as a drink cooler while I'm saving rendered princesses.

Okay that last part was just for kicks, but you get the idea.

Are you having heat issues on any? I mean your ram is entry level, I would just upgrade it rather then stick sinks to it.
