Just IMO I wouldn't put it in there you don't want to obstruct your airflow

Unless you are using Dominator ram with the high fins in your new rig, the OCZ XTC is a bit better for not obstructing airflow. The Dominator stands about one inch off the ram, which was made for the higher fins. The big fan on the armour should still cool the RAM adequately, but if you really want a RAMcooler, the OCZ also looks quite a bit better, IMO.

I don't know about the whole case layout of the Armor, but you could try using the Dominator for something else, like what I did in the PCI area for my Cosmos.
