Yep, you need 20. Your mobo, as it's 4+1 will probably need like 12-13, but you can't buy them one-by-one smile.gif

alright so i should buy 2 sets of 10 and not use thermal epoxy...(do you ever use it?) and then get the mugen 2 cpu cooler and i use thermal epoxy for that though right for attatching the cpu cooler to the cpu? and for keeping the ram cool, 3 120mm and a 140mm would be fine right?
