Hi Sufiankane,

As you can see there are a lot of options. My humble opinion and to keep within your vow to yourself of "actively cool everything". You could also purchase and install a lager heatsink, say one with a 120mm fan on top of it. Most of these type coolers over hang the ram by 25 to 30mm and will add to creating air flow over your ram.
Another option would be to add a fan in your case side that would blow room air over the top of your ram. Cutting a hole, adding a fan with lights or not and ducting air over the ram is pretty easy. Make sure if you apply this method to buy or make a filter for the fan, so you don't add dust to the inside of your case.
They also sell cases with fans on the sides to allow just this type of cooling. Some cases even have 2 fans on the sides. Just more ideas...
As some others might suggest, cooling the ram probably isn't necessary. If you have good air flow through the case you should be fine, but then again it doesn't fit your vow...
If you need links to some of the stuff I mentioned above, post back Ok??

I hope this helped, :-)

can u say ghetto?
lol
get pull ties
but blu tacking is ok

is your ram really that hot???
heat spreaders do a good job and if u have reasonable airflow.....

you could try putting a blowhole on the top of your case
it could create an upward/downward current of air \\ony the ram
