Added 8GB 1866 RAM to my rig

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Browsing Newegg about 2 weeks ago I noticed that the blue version of my RAM dropped to $60. I already had 8GB 1866 in black and my system was running just fine with that. After debating whether or not it was worth it to buy more RAM, it came down to just wanting it even though I don't really need it. I wasn't originally planning on having a color theme but I decided to do black and blue when I got my HAF 912.
450
Anyone else buy more RAM than needed for the color combo or just because it was cheap?

I don't think I need a RAM cooler with the memory having heat fins and my Hyper 212+ with the push fan drawing air over them the way it is now. I'm just happy they fit without issue and the color looks great.
