2x 7950s and low profile samsung ram.

I guess that works! Cheers

What do you mean, "sata 6bg/s ones"? Basically all SATA cables equally well on SATA II and SATA III (3 and 6Gbps).

I meant that if the cables on the hot swap bays are sata 3 (6gb/s) or sata 2 (3gb/s). But in the article you linked it says that there is virtually no difference. So I'll be mounting my ssd's in the bays, thanks!

Thanks for the input on the RAM fan. As someone had mentioned, I wasn't really buying it to cool my RAM, but rather to cover up my RAM because the color clashes (I understand this is a very silly reason for this).

It was only $22, so I went ahead and bought one. I'll try putting it on tonight and see if it looks any better. Seems easier than trying to trade RAM with someone or trying to change the color of the heatspreaders. Thanks!

Yes it is possible smile.gif

I had it in there with a Sabertooth and 360 in the front thumb.gif
