I think you answered your own question and didn't realise, is the ram block for looks or your ram is running hot? if it's there for looks remove it.

Sadly most ram and some mobo blocks are restrictive

Opps forgot to say Great looking setup you have thumb.gif

There is a common perception that RAM blocks and motherboard blocks are flow stoppers. In reality if you look inside modern ones they are nothing more than a flattened tube with nothing to restrict flow like micro channels in GPU blocks and impingement plates in CPU blocks. Older models are a different story.
What does restrict flow in the loop pictured are the quick disconnects. Each male/female pair is about the same restriction as a modern CPU or GPU block. I can see at least 2 pairs so thats the equivalent of two extra blocks at least. Taking them out will definitely improve your flow rate, or you can just double your pump pressure with a second pump.

Appreciate the input guys. I've been water cooling for less than two years so I don't know much about it. Yes the RAM block is cooling the DIMMs. There are two quick disconnects in the loop because when I want to remove the motherboard I may not want to drain the loop at that time. I didn't know the quick disconnects caused restriction. Nobody has covered that in all the videos I've watched. I already ordered the parts online to make a dual loop so next weekend I'll make the changes and see what happens.
